The scheme is designed to help disabled people who have severe mobility problems lead independent lives by knowing that when they reach a destination, either as a driver or passenger, that they will be able to park near to a venue and therefore have easier access to the services they want to use. It isn’t to provide free parking.
The Blue Badge parking concessions only allow badge holders to park on street. They don’t apply to off street privately operated car parks, such as supermarket car parks or on privately owned roads, such as those you find at airports. There may, however be special concessions for badge holders in these areas and you should check for signs detailing these. It allows on street, free parking without time restriction, where it is safe to do so.
The advantages of applying online:
Applicants should be aware that non-affiliated websites exist and charge fees of up to £49 for assistance. These are not associated with the Blue Badge Scheme.
