Blue Badge parking

Register for a Blue Badge and search for car parks with disabled spaces.

Blue Badge holders can park free of charge for up to three hours in most of our car park spaces. This does not include:

  • Permit bays
  • Park and Ride sites

If you live in Kent, you can apply for a Blue Badge from Kent County Council.

Automatic Number Plate Registration (ANPR) car parks

You must create an account before you enter an ANPR car park for the first time, and then register your badge online to get the three free hours in the ANPR car parks.

You can register up to two vehicles against your badge. Each time you park, make sure that the vehicle you're using is marked as the primary vehicle. You can change this in your account.

If you are using your badge, please make sure it's clearly visible on the dashboard of your vehicle.

If you already have a council account you can log in to add your vehicle details.

Find a parking space

You can use our online directory to find out which car parks have reserved disabled parking spaces.

Disabled parking bays

If you have a Blue Badge and don’t have off-street parking for your car, you can apply for a disabled parking bay. 

These parking bays can be used by anyone with a Blue Badge. If we approve a bay, it won’t just belong to you.
