The Blue Badge scheme is designed to help disabled people who have severe mobility problems lead independent lives by knowing that when they reach a destination, either as a driver or passenger, they will be able to park near to a venue and therefore have easier access to the services they want to use. It isn’t to provide free parking.

The Blue Badge parking concessions only allow badge holders to park on-street. They don’t apply to off-street privately operated car parks, such as supermarket car parks or on privately owned roads, such as those you find at airports. There may, however, be special concessions for badge holders in these areas and you should check for signs detailing these. It allows on-street, free parking without time restriction.


If you would like us to send you an application form please email us via the contact details on the right of the page or pick one up at the Travel Centre at Stirling bus station.

Please allow 28 working days to process.

  • If your application is approved you will receive notification regarding payment and delivery.
  • If your application is refused you can ask us to review the decision. You should do this within four weeks of receipt of your refusal letter. 

There is a £20 fee for a blue badge. We will contact you to let you know when your badge is approved and awaiting payment.
