Blue Badges (Parking Concessions for the Disabled)

Blue badge holders may:-

  • park without charge on any Newcastle-under-Lyme Borough Council car park, in any parking bay, for an unlimited time period
  • park free of charge and without time limit at parking meters on street and "pay and display" on street parking unless local traffic orders prevent this within the Borough
  • be exempt from limits on parking times imposed on others
  • usually park on single or double yellow lines for up to three hours in England and Wales and without time limit in Scotland unless this is prevented by a ban or local scheme.

The badge itself is usually valid for three years.
