Blue Badges and Special Access Permits
Blue Badge Scheme
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 (Opens in a New Window) for more information on the scheme.
Blue Badge holders can have up to 3 hours free parking - normal charges apply thereafter in Pay & Display car parks. Please ensure both the blue badge and time clock set to the time of arrival are clearly displayed in the vehicle.
