**NEWS** - BLUE BADGE HOLDERS URGED TO HAVE THEIR SAY
BLUE BADGE HOLDERS and other car park users are being urged to have their say on a consultation about the provision of Blue Badge parking spaces at some of Broxtowe Borough Council’s car parks.
The consultation is available at www.broxtowe.gov.uk/bluebayconsultation until 27th March 2017. The Council is consulting on the provision of spaces in five of its 29 car parks, after surveys taken in the autumn of last year suggested a significant number of spaces in these sites were underused.
Blue Badges allow vehicles carrying people with certain disabilities to be parked near shops, stations and other facilities.
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.
The Blue Badge is recognised throughout the UK and Europe.
Please visit the Nottinghamshire County Council website to find out how to apply for a Blue Badge.
