Parking Blue Badge - disabled parking permits

How and where to use your badge

With a Blue Badge you can:

•    park for up to three hours on a single or double yellow line as long as there are no loading restrictions. The clock on the badge must be set to show your time of arrival.

•    park without time limit at a pay and display parking bay (free of charge) and, without time limit on a designated on-street accessible bay. See where disabled parking bays are in Manchester.

•    park on resident parking permit bays without a time limit. 

The badge can only be used where the holder is a passenger to or from the parking location.   

You can also use your Blue Badge throughout the European Union, although the terms may vary between countries.  Check EU Blue Badge rules before you go. 

If you move out of Manchester you can still use the badge until it expires.  When your badge needs renewing you should contact the Council where you now live.

You should not hold more than one blue badge at any given time or share your blue badge.
