Personalised permit bays for blue badge holders

If you’re a blue badge holder, and your mobility impairment makes it difficult for you to walk short distances, but you don’t have access to off-street parking, you may be able to get a personalised permit bay installed outside your home or in a residential car park managed by the Council’s parking services.

If you have a valid blue badge and want to apply for a personalised permit bay, you’ll need to apply for a free companion badge or an estate parking permit, this will be linked to the one vehicle entitled to park in the personalised permit bay.

For any advice about personalised permit bays, email call 020 8356 8328.
