Blue Badge parking scheme
The Blue Badge scheme provides a range of parking concessions for drivers or passengers with severe mobility problems. The scheme operates throughout the UK.
You will find information about the Blue Badge scheme (new window) on the Directgov website.
In Suffolk the Blue Badge scheme is managed by Suffolk County Council and application forms (new window) are available on its website.
You can also apply for a Blue Badge online (new window) via the Directgov website.
Parking concessions provided under the Blue Badge scheme only apply to on-street parking and do not apply to off-street car parks that Suffolk Coastal provides.
Suffolk Coastal no longer allows free parking in Council car parks when a valid Blue Badge is displayed. Normal tariffs apply to Blue Badge holders but with double the time purchased when a valid pay and display ticket is displayed alongside a valid Blue Badge.
