Blue badge parking scheme for disabled people

Blue badge image The Blue Badge Scheme provides a range of parking concessions for people with severe mobility problems. The scheme is run by Nottinghamshire County Council, which is the highways authority for the county.

Who is eligible for a Blue Badge?

  • People on certain benefits or who are registered blind are automatically eligible for a badge.
  • Other disabled people may be eligible for a badge but it will depend on the results of a mobility assessment.
  • Children under 3 may be eligible depending on certain conditions.
  • Organisations caring for disabled people meeting the eligibility criteria may be able to get a badge, but this is entirely at the county council's discretion.

Blue Badges are issued to individual people not vehicles. This means you can use a Blue Badge both as a driver and a passenger. You can also transfer your Blue Badge to whichever vehicle you are using for a particular journey.

You can apply on-line or by calling 0300 500 80 80
