Apply Online for a Blue Badge

pdf icon Disabled Blue Badge Application Form [359kb]

(Please note that this form is only for residents who live within the boundary covered by Nottingham City Council - i.e. those who pay their Council Tax to Nottingham City Council).

Please return completed application forms to:

Processing and Enforcement Services PO Box 10169, Nottingham NG1 9HS

Telephone:- 0115 876 1499 option 4

There is an administration fee of £10.00.

You must supply:

  • A photocopy of the qualifying evidence for an automatic entitlement if applicable
  • Proof of residency
  • Two proofs of identification i.e. passport, drivers license
  • One recent passport-style/size photograph of yourself signed on the back
  • A cheque/postal order for £10.00 made payable to Nottingham City Council (non-refundable)

Please do not send cash or original documents to us in the post.

If you are successful in obtaining a Blue Badge you will also be sent a letter advising that it cannot be displayed in a clear plastic pocket as this may cause damage to the badge and would require you to pay for a replacement.

If you still wish to display your badge and time clock together in a wallet, new specially designed wallets suitable for the new badges are available and can be obtained by contacting us on 0115 8761499 where a small fee would be payable.

Apply on Behalf of Someone Else

You can apply on behalf of a person with a disability if you are a parent or guardian of a child up to the age of 16 years or helping someone who has difficulty writing, for example due to poor eyesight or poor co-ordination. However all sections of the form should be completed with the name and details of the person who qualifies for the badge, NOT the person applying on their behalf.

If the application is for a child under the age of 12 years, the signature can be provided by their parent or guardian. In all other cases the named applicant must sign the form and photographs.
