Our online forms for planning, building control and licensing applications will be unavailable from 12pm to 2pm on Saturday 21 May. This is due to essential maintenance.

Displaying your blue badge

You must clearly display your blue badge to make use of its benefits.

You must display the blue badge where it can be clearly read through the windscreen of your  vehicle. The front of the badge should face upwards, showing the wheelchair symbol or the hologram in the new badge design.

when you receive your badge, you should also get a parking clock. Whenever you park on yellow lines, or in a  place with time restrictions, the clock should;

  • show the quarter-hour period when you arrived
  • be displayed next to the badge

You should only display the badge and disc when you are using the parking benefits under the blue badge scheme. The only exception is if you are entering or leaving a place (which is accessible only to vehicles displaying a blue badge) in order to pick up or drop off the badge holder.

If the details on the front of your badge become unreadable, you must return it to us and we will issue you a new one.
