Blue badge scheme

Where can I use my Blue Badge?

Remember, the Blue Badge must be displayed at all times when parking.

Badge holders:

  • may park free of charge and without time limit at parking meters on-street and 'pay-and-display' on-street parking
  • may be exempt from time limits imposed on other users
  • may usually park on single or double yellow lines in Scotland without any time limit. In England and Northern Ireland, there is a time limit of up to three hours. Badge holders should also check for loading or unloading restrictions indicated by yellow markings on the kerb. When these restrictions are in force the badge holder is not permitted to park
  • can park in greenways out-with times of operation

The badge belongs to you, and not to the vehicle you are travelling in. You will therefore only be issued with one badge.

As long as the journey is being made for you, and you are in the car with your badge, you can travel in any car.

If in doubt about where to park at any time or for more information, visit our parking section.
