Disabled parking

The Blue Badge scheme offers parking concessions for disabled people.

How to apply for a Blue Badge

The local Blue Badge scheme is run by Buckinghamshire County Council (Bucks CC).

Parking for Blue Badge holders

Pay and display car parks

Blue Badge holders can park free of charge in any bay (other than reserved bays) in our pay and display car parks. You must clearly display your blue badge and time clock (set to time of arrival) and follow any time limit restrictions.

Camera controlled (ANPR) car parks

We operate an automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) system in Easton Street and Wycombe Swan car parks. Blue badge holders will need to register with Parking Services in order to be able to park free of charge in these two car parks. There is no charge for registration.

The easiest way to apply is online.

Or, download and send the paper form to us: ANPR Blue Badge application form [Word | 147KB]

You can register one vehicle for each Blue Badge.  If the badgeholder is in that vehicle, the car can drive in and out of the car park without charge; you don't need to use the pay station. You must pay in the normal way if the badgeholder is not in the car.

We will provide a bar-coded card for use when the badgeholder is in an unregistered vehicle. Enter the registration at the pay station in the normal way prior to exit, follow the instructions, and scan the bar coded card when asked if you have a voucher. This removes any fees incurred.

Please note:

  • registration lapses when the Blue Badge expires; renewal forms are available upon request
  • only one vehicle may be parked free of charge at any one time
  • payment for parking is required if the badge is not registered

Terms and conditions

Any changes to the process or terms and conditions of use will be displayed in each car park.

  • the disabled badgeholder must be present in the car to use the concession
  • if parked in a dedicated disabled bay, you must clearly display a valid Blue Badge and parking clock set to the time of arrival
  • you must tell us immediately in writing (or by email) if any changes are made in respect of either your Blue Badge or registered vehicle
  • you must tell us if the bar-coded card is lost or stolen: we will consider issuing a replacement , which may be subject to an administration charge 

We may issue a Standard Charge Ticket or Penalty Charge Notifce if:

  • the Blue Badge displayed is out of date
  • the issue details on a Blue Badge cannot be verified from outside the vehicle
  • it appears that the Blue Badge is being misused: this could result in this concession being removed and details of the Blue Badge being passed to the issuing authority for further investigation
  • the vehicle is parked in breach of regulations that apply to the car park, as detailed on the notice board
