What it costs:
If your application is successful there will be a £10 charge for all new, renewed and organisational badges issued by Lincolnshire County Council. The badge fee will be non-refundable and payable only if your application is successful. There will be no charge for unsuccessful applications.
Please do not send payment with your application form; we will contact you if your application is successful to request payment and inform you of how you can pay the badge fee.
People who may also qualify for a badge
Some people may also be eligible for a badge if they are more than two years old and have a permanent and substantial disability which causes inability to walk or very considerable difficulty in walking.
If you are applying for a badge under this criterion you will need to show that you have a permanent and substantial disability which means:
- you are unable to walk
- you are unable to walk very far without experiencing very considerable difficulty. This may include excessive pain and breathlessness, or a deterioration of health brought on by the effort needed to walk
A permanent and substantial disability is one that is likely to last for all of your life. Eligibility is not determined on the basis of a particular diagnosis or condition. It is the effect of the permanent disability on your ability to walk that is important.
