Apply for a Blue Badge

Who can get a Blue Badge

You may be eligible for a Blue Badge if you have permanent disability that affects your mobility. The Department for Transport has information about who can get a Blue Badge.

After you've applied

  • We will let you know if there's any additional proofs that we need for your application.
  • It can take up to six weeks to process your application.
  • You may need to have a mobility assessment.

For guidance on the process you can view this Mobility Assessment Leaflet ( PDF 1.18 MB  )

Renew a Blue Badge

Each renewal is treated like a new application to make sure we only issue Blue Badges when we are supposed to.

We will send you a renewal form six weeks before your current badge expires. Please complete this form and return it to Hove Town Hall in person or by post.

You can apply for a new badge before your current one runs out, even if you don't receive our letter.
