Blue Badge

What does it do?

The service allows badge holders to park closer to their destination. The national concessions apply only to on-street parking.

The process for applying for a new badge and renewing an old one is almost the same and is all done through the same form. We just need your current badge details for any renewals.

The Department for Transport doesn't allow us to issue badges for any longer than 3 years. So even if you have an enduring condition, you will still need to renew your badge every 3 years.

We don't process applications from residents outside of Dorset or from Bournemouth, Christchurch or Poole
