Where can you park with a Blue Badge?

The Blue Badge scheme only applies to on-street parking.  Badge holders have free use of parking meters and pay-and-display bays. They may also be exempt from limits on parking times imposed on other users (check local signs for information) and can park for up to three hours on yellow lines (except where there is a ban on loading or unloading or other restrictions, blue badge holders must not park in loading bays). A clock card must be displayed when parking on yellow lines.

The scheme does not apply to off-street car parks including Torridge District Council owned car parks, supermarket car parks, or privately-owned roads, such as those you find at airports. A guide to the rights and responsibilities of Blue Badge holders in England (which includes full details of where parking is permitted) is available to download to the right.
