Travelling by car

The blue badge scheme allows people who have difficulty walking to park more easily.

Having a blue badge means you do not have to pay when you park at parking meters and in pay and display spaces. In some areas, when you display a Blue Badge, you may be able to park for longer than the normal time limits.

To find out more about Blue Badges and whether you could get one contact Customer First.

To apply for a Blue Badge, see: Apply for a Blue Badge
