A blue badge helps people with severe walking difficulties who travel as drivers or passengers, to park close to their destination in on-street parking and some car parks. The scheme is also for people who are severely sight impaired and for people with hidden disabilities including autism and mental health conditions.

There is a charge of £10 for a blue badge, there is no charge to apply.

Please be aware that there are some organisations and websites which offer a service to help you apply and they will charge you for this help. Don’t use a service like that, it’s easy to do it yourself.

You can find more information about blue badges and how to apply on the Somerset County Council website.
