Parking for residents with hidden disabilities
As of 30 August 2019, the Disabled Persons Blue Badge criteria allows residents with hidden disabilities to apply. There will be no changes to the current application process. For more information, visit the news page of the GOV.UK website.
Find out more about the Blue Badge Scheme and apply online on the Apply page of the GOV.UK website.
The Purple Badge Scheme
Please be aware as the Disabled Persons Blue Badge Scheme does not apply to Central London, due to traffic congestion and the high demand for parking space, Kensington and Chelsea runs the Purple Badge Scheme for people who live, work and study in the borough. Our Purple Badge scheme runs in conjunction with the Blue Badge scheme and applicants will need a Purple Badge for parking within the borough and a Blue badge for parking outside.
More information about our Purple Badge Scheme is available on the Disabled parking for residents page.
