Blue Badge "advice" warning

Some private websites charge a fee for advice and help with applications for a Blue Badge. These websites are not connected with us or the government, and do not guarantee a successful application. We advise residents simply to follow the advice and links here on our website.

The website is 'copycat' site that charges a fee you shouldn't have to pay. We strongly advise you not to use this website. If you've been affected by a private website that has charged you a fee, you should report it to the Citizens Advice consumer service.

Government secure services – 21 June to 24 June

Due to essential maintenance work, we will be unable to process Blue Badge parking applications and 'Tell us once' reports of changes in personal circumstances between 6pm, Friday 21 June and 8am, Monday 24 June. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Renewing your Blue Badge

You must apply to renew your Blue Badge before it expires.

We suggest you apply 2 months before your current Blue Badge is due to expire.

The cost of a Blue Badge renewal is £10. You will only be charged for this if your renewal application is successful.

You should apply online to renew your Blue Badge via the government's GOV.UK website.
