Postal strikes

There may be some delays during the delivery process if you are successful for a Blue Badge due to industrial action by Royal Mail.

Organisational Blue Badge

Blue Badges can only be issued to organisations with a permanent address in West Northamptonshire that care for and transport people who would themselves be eligible for a Blue Badge.

The organisation should:

  • be using a vehicle specifically adapted for the use of disabled passengers
  • be able to provide details of the adaptations
  • provide details of the vehicle being licensed under the Disabled Passenger Vehicle (DPV) taxation class
  • confirm that the vehicle is being used solely for the purpose of transporting the disabled people being cared for
  • provide proof of the above eligibility

The assessment process may take up to 6 weeks following receipt of your application form. You do not need to contact us before this period ends.

There is a £10 charge when applying for an organisational Blue Badge payable by credit or debit card - if you are ineligible this will be refunded.

Why information is on a different website
We are in the process of adding information to this new unitary council website. Some pages will give you a link back to a previous council website to help you find what you need. Read more about the council changes.
