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. 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.

We advise residents simply to follow the advice and links here on our website.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) – expired Blue Badges

Until 30 September 2020, we will not issue a penalty charge notice to anyone who uses a Blue Badge with an expiry date of 1 January 2020 or later.

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.
