About disabled parking

Blue badge scheme

The Blue Badge scheme is a national scheme that provides parking concessions for:

  • drivers and/or passengers with severe walking difficulties
  • people who are registered blind
  • drivers with very severe upper limb disabilities who cannot turn a steering wheel by hand

How do I get a blue badge?

Cheltenham Borough Council do not administer the blue badge scheme. For local information on obtaining a blue badge or for an application form please visit the Gloucestershire County Council website.

All council car parks have designated disabled parking bays. Blue badge holders are able to park all day, free of charge, as long as their badge is displayed. If no disabled parking bays are available, blue badge holders may park in any other car park bay.
