Blue Badge Information

Blue Badge Information

Resident or visitor permits are not required as a blue badge can be used at any time. Please see the car park tariff page for information on blue badge requirements within a car park.

The blue badge clock should be set correctly and clearly displayed on all permitted restrictions, which we highlight on our dedicated blue badge page.

The blue badge clock should be clearly displayed when there is an advertised maximum stay. Please read tariff boards and street signs for further advice. Blue badge holders can also refer to their blue badge scheme booklet.

Blue Badges are issued by Essex County Council Social Services. For any blue badge application queries, you can speak to their team on 0845 6037630 or apply online.
