The 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.
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.

Blue Badge Section - Opening Hours
Due to COVID-19 the Blue Badge section is not currently open at Stirling Bus Station. If you have an urgent enquiry please contact us on 01786 237502 between 0900h and 1600h Monday to Friday.
The Council is continuing to process Blue Badge applications at present, however due to the quickly changing situation we cannot guarantee to process these in the normal timescales. If you do not urgently require your Blue Badge we would ask you to consider holding off on applying. Any applications which are subject to further assessment and require an independent mobility assessment will not be able to be processed at this time. These require a face to face meeting with our occupational therapist and these assessments will only resume when the current restrictions are lifted and it is safe to do so. We would ask that all applicants are patient in these difficult times and to avoid contacting the Council to discuss your application at this time.
Stirling Council has been made aware of websites that charge Blue Badge applicants for assistance in completing their application form. These websites are not affiliated to or recognised by the Council. if you need assistance in completing your Blue Badge application form, please follow the guidance above.
