The Blue Badge Scheme

The Blue Badge scheme provides people who have disabilities and eligible conditions with a badge to place in their car which allows them to park in more accessible locations.

Here you will find information about the scheme, details of how to apply and information about similar and related services that may also support those interested in Blue Badges.

Please note: We are aware that the postal service is experiencing delivery delays, which has effected the delivery schedule of Blue Badges. Whilst most will be delivered within 7-10 days, please allow up to 21 days from the time your application is confirmed and the badge is ordered.


You can apply for a Blue Badge via the GOV.UK website by clicking on the button below. This website will allow you to submit an application without adding all of the required details so that you may begin now and return once you have all of the documentation and information required.

Apply online on GOV.UK

We regret that we cannot currently take over-the-phone payments due to technical challenges. All payments must be submitted as part of the online application or by post in the form of a postal order or cheque labelled with your name and address.

By post

You can apply for a Blue Badge by submitting a postal form, though this can cause delay whilst the application is going through the postal service. The fastest application method continues to be the online service.

You can download the printable application form by clicking on the button below, which can then be sent by post to:

Blue Badge Team,
Gloucestershire County Council,
1st Floor, Block 1,
Shire Hall,
Westgate Street,
