Home Information for Residents Transport, Parking and Streets Parking and Bus Lanes Penalty Charge Notices Parking Contraventions FAQs 87 - Parked in a designated disabled persons' parking place without a Blue Badge (car park)

Most car parks are “pay on exit”; however, if you had a Blue Badge whilst parking in one of our car parks, unless stated on the parking charges tariff, you must buy a pay and display ticket and display this clearly in your car, or have a discounted season ticket on display along with your Blue Badge. If either of these circumstances apply, we may consider your challenge.

What you will need to provide:

  • If you had a valid pay and display ticket or a discounted season ticket on display but your Blue Badge was not clearly displayed, you will need to provide a copy of both the front and the rear photo side of the badge, making sure the details on the badge are clearly visible.
  • If your Blue Badge was on display but your pay and display ticket or discounted season ticket was not clearly displayed, you will need to provide a copy of the pay and display ticket or discounted season ticket, showing the expiry date and time or the expiry date of the season ticket.

If you were in a car park which allows 4 hours for free, your Blue Badge and clock must be displayed. Additional time must be purchased and ticket displayed clearly - please refer to tariffs.

We may consider a challenge if the badge:

  • Had fallen down
  • Was closed in a wallet
  • Was face down
  • Was not put on display.

or

  • There was not a valid time clock showing the arrival time

You will need to provide a copy of both the front side and the rear photo side of the badge. Please make sure that the details on the badge are clearly visible.
