Blue Badge parking scheme

Parked cars

The Blue Badge scheme gives parking concessions across the UK, which help disabled people park closer to their destination

    Leicestershire Blue Badge holders must re-apply for a new badge before their current one expires. This can now be done online.

    An application for a Blue Badge is free of charge. Successful applications require a payment of £10 to issue the Blue Badge.

    If your Blue Badge is lost, stolen or damaged you can report it and get a replacement.

    The misuse of Blue Badges affects genuinely disabled people who are using the scheme correctly
