Disabled Parking for Visitors

The Blue Badge Scheme

This Blue Badge scheme gives national parking concessions for drivers and passengers with severe disabilities. These badges are issued to people with a physical disability, or those who are registered as blind, and need to be able to park close to their destination.

Due to traffic congestion and the high demand for parking space the Blue Badge scheme does not apply in central London - this includes Kensington and Chelsea, Westminster, City of London and parts of Camden.

A Blue Badge gives the following benefits in Kensington and Chelsea:

  • As long as you have made a payment (up to the maximum time allowed) at a pay and display machine, you can have one hour's free parking after the time you have paid for has run out. 
  • Up to 4 hours of parking in a disabled parking bay. Disabled parking bays can be found via our interactive map.
