Renewing your Blue Badge or reporting it lost, stolen or damaged

How do you replace your lost, stolen or damaged Blue Badge?

Please note: Due to COVID-19 and the possible delay with processing new and renewal Blue Badge applications, the UK Government is endorsing new guidance in relation to expired Blue Badges. Citizens with existing Blue Badges with an expiry date of 1 January 2020 onwards will NOT be issued Penalty Charge Notices. This relaxation of enforcement against expired Blue Badges will continue initially until 30 September 2020. Please be aware this applies to local authority parking and NOT private car parks.

You must report your stolen Blue Badge to the Police and obtain an incident number.

 A replacement Blue Badge replaces the badge lost/stolen and as such will display the same photograph and expiry date. Once we have received the form we will contact you for payment.

How do you renew your Blue Badge?

  • a reminder will be automatically sent to you at least two months prior to your Blue Badge expiring inviting you to reapply via GOV.UK
  • if you have not received your reminder letter within 8 weeks of your badge expiring, please visit GOV.UK to complete your application
  • we will also require one photograph (taken within the month prior to the date of the application), proof of address (unless you have given consent for us to check your personal details on the Local Authorities Council Tax database) and proof of identity
