    Q209: I got a fixed penalty notice for parking but I have a disabled badge. What can I do?

    A disabled parking badge (otherwise known as a Blue Badge) is intended for on-street parking only. Off-street car parks, such as those provided by shopping centres, hospitals or supermarkets are covered by separate rules.

     

    There are on-street parking concessions available to you as a Blue Badge holder. However, you must always check signs to see that the rules are when parking as some time limits may apply in certain areas.

     

    If you wish to challenge the ticket, you need to write to the address on it stating your reasons as to why you think the ticket should be cancelled - if it concerns a disabled parking permit you should include a photocopy of it.
