Blue Badge Scheme

The Blue Badge scheme runs across the UK. It gives people with severe mobility problems, who have difficulty using public transport, additional parking rights. This makes it easier for them to park close to where they need to go.

The scheme provides a national range of on-street parking concessions for Blue Badge holders who are travelling either as a driver or passenger. It allows badge holders to park without time limit in places such as on-street disabled bays and at on-street parking meters and pay and display machines. Badge holders can also park on yellow lines for up to three hours, unless a ban on loading or unloading is in force.

For more information on the scheme, please visit the Birmingham City Council website (opens in new window).
