Blue badge disabled parking permits

The national blue badge scheme provides parking concessions for people with certain disabilities. A blue badge lets you park closer to the shops and services you need to use.  This is whether you’re the driver or a passenger in a car.

The blue badge is for on-street parking only. There are different rules for off-street parking, like council, hospital or supermarket car parks.

Check if you are eligible and apply for a blue badge


Free disabled parking when you don't pay car tax

Blue Badge holders are able to park for free in a Cornwall Council pay and display car park if they:

  • have a vehicle that is adapted for the benefit of the driver to use or
  • they are registered on the Cornwall Council exemption scheme

This scheme is open to all blue badge holders who also have a registered disabled vehicle which qualifies for free tax. It is not limited to Cornish residents.

Only one vehicle can be registered per person.

Appeal a parking fine

If you believe your penalty charge notice was wrongly issued, you can challenge it. Don’t pay the charge if you want to make a challenge. Challenges can’t be accepted if you’ve already paid.

If you make a challenge within 14 days of the date of issue you will have another chance to pay at the 50% reduced rate if your challenge is rejected.
