Applying for a Blue Badge

Due to the ongoing developments with the coronavirus outbreak in Wales and the need to focus staff resources towards services, the Blue Badge application service has temporarily changed. All new applications need to be made online. Please read the information below

The Blue Badge scheme helps you park closer to your destination if you’re disabled.

Who can get a blue badge and how to apply

All applicants must be the driver or passenger in a vehicle when using a Blue Badge.

All renewals can be made on line on GOV.UK.

We will check and verify your blue badge application. We will contact you if we need more information about your application.

Once we have all the relevant information from you, it can take up to 8 weeks to process your application.

You do not need to contact us again, unless you have not heard from us after 8 weeks.

If your application is refused

We will contact you to explain why you are not eligible for a blue badge.

You can also reapply if your mobility problems become more serious.

Badges can be replaced for a charge of £10 (you may need to prove you are still eligible to receive one)

Once reported lost/stolen or damaged, we will cancel the badge, so if it is found at a later date it will not be valid and should be returned immediately to:

Customer Services Team,
One Stop Shop Civic Centre,
Neath,
SA11 3QZ  

Expired badges and Found badges:

If you find a Blue Badge please return it stating where found to:

Customer Services Team,
One Stop Shop Civic Centre,
Neath,
SA11 3QZ  

The badge and its concessions are for the named person on the badge only.  It is a criminal offence for the holder, or anyone else, to misuse the badge, and doing so could lead to a £1000.00 fine and result in the confiscation of the blue badge
