Blue Badge parking scheme

Blue badgeThe Blue Badge scheme provides a range of parking concessions for drivers or passengers with severe mobility problems. The scheme operates throughout the UK.

In Suffolk the Blue Badge scheme is managed by Suffolk County Council. More information and application forms are available on its website.

The quickest and easiest way to apply for a Blue Badge is online via the GOV.UK 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.
