Blue Badge scheme

The Blue Badge scheme helps you park closer to your destination if you’re disabled with a severe mobility problem.

You are automatically eligible if you:

  • receive the Higher Rate of the Mobility Component of the Disability Living Allowance (HRMCDLA)
  • are registered blind or severely sight-impaired
  • receive 8 points or more under the ‘Moving Around’ section within the Personal Independence Payment (PIP)
  • receive a War Pensioner’s Mobility Supplement; a benefit under the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme (AFCS); or are certified as having a permanent and substantial disability by the Service Personnel and Veterans Agency (SPVA)

You may be eligible if you:

  • are unable to walk or can only walk with severe difficulty
  • if you have a severe disability in both arms, drive an adapted car and are unable to operate, or have considerable difficulty operating, a parking meter
  • a child who must always be accompanied by bulky medical equipment
  • a child who must always be kept near a motor vehicle for treatment or transport

Blue Badges are only issued for permanent conditions. You cannot have a temporary badge.

Apply for a Blue Badge

There is a £10 fee for all new, renewed and organisational badges issued by the County Council. Unsuccessful applications will not be charged.


If you are unable to complete the application form, e-mail or call 01522 782232.

You may also download and complete the appropriate application form below and return it to Lincolnshire County Council, Blue Badge Team, County Offices, Newland, Lincoln LN1 1YL.

The review process usually takes 5-7 weeks, and then a further week once approved and payment received.

Do not pay for the services of any website or individual offering assistance in completing the application form. They are not affiliated with the scheme in any way and it could be a scam.

For further information on the Blue Badge scheme, visit Citizens Advice.

Misuse of the Blue Badge

If you wish to report an incident of abuse or misuse of a Blue Badge, you can report it online:


It is a criminal offence for non-disabled people to use a badge. They could be fined up to £1,000.

You can only let someone else use your badge if:

  • you’re in the car with them
  • they’re picking you up or dropping you off, and they need to park close to where you need to go

If someone else is driving you, you must let them know the rules, otherwise the County Council may ask for your badge back.
