Blue Badges for individuals


Blue Badge application progress updates and timescales

Blue Badges are assessed within 6 weeks of us receiving all supporting documents.

If you do not provide all the correct documents within 28 days, your application will be automatically closed and you will be refunded.

Chasing progress updates

If you have applied in the last 6 weeks, please do not chase progress - your application will be assessed.

When to renew your Blue Badge

If your application is successful, your Blue Badge will be issued for 3 years.

You will not automatically receive a renewal reminder. It is the badge holder's responsibility to apply for a new badge 8 weeks before the expiry date.
