COVID-19 Update

There may be a delay processing new Blue Badge applications and reapplications and may also have an existing backlog of current applications. The Scottish Government are endorsing new British Parking Association guidance that Scottish local authority parking teams should not issue Penalty Charge Notices to Blue Badges with an expiry date of 1 January 2020 onwards. This relaxation of enforcement against expired Blue Badges should continue initially until 30 September 2020.

As per guidance from Department of Transport regarding the processing of applications, they have also advised us that we can no longer arrange face to face assessments and will be completed when an appropriate level of assessment can be undertaken.

The Blue Badge Scheme is designed to help people who are unable to walk, or who are virtually unable to walk, to travel independently, as either a driver or as a passenger, by allowing them to park close to their destination.

Registered blind people and people with very severe upper limb disabilities, who drive a vehicle but cannot turn a steering wheel by hand are also covered by the scheme.

The scheme gives concessions to Blue Badge holders when they park on-street and holders may also benefit from special parking bays. Please note it is Dundee City Council Policy to charge £20 for the issue of Blue Badges.

A few weeks before the expiry date printed on your Blue Badge you should decide if you still need help to get around. If you do, you should apply for a new Blue Badge. You might be required to attend a mobility assessment or provide up-to-date evidence of your eligibility.

What you'll need to apply or renew online:

  • National Insurance number or NHS Number
  • proof of your address
  • proof of your identity
  • a passport photo
  • details of your current badge (if you have one)

You cannot use the online form if you're applying for:

  • a visually impaired child or young person under 16

You should contact the Blue Badge team for an application form, we can post this out to you. Blue Badge Team on 01382 438335 or email blue.badge@dundeecity.gov.uk
