Blue Badge Scheme

As a result of the current situation with the Corona Virus (Covid-19) and following Government guidelines, there will be no face-to-face Blue Badge Assessments.

If an Assessment is required, this will be carried out via telephone and you will be notified accordingly of the date and time.

If you are applying for a Blue Badge renewal, you will be required to apply on-line and your Badge will be issued in due course.

If you have a Blue Badge due to expire within the next 12 weeks, please submit your on-line application.

Please note: we no longer accept paper application forms, if you require assistance please email the Blue Badge Team at

Apply online


Other ways of applying

If you cannot apply on-line, call us on 01922 653560 or email for help with making an application.

Payment of a blue badge

A blue badge costs £10.00. You can pay online.


How long will it take to receive my Blue Badge?


  • For a first application, we will issue the badge within 28 days if your application is successful.
  • For a renewal, please apply at least 8 weeks before your blue badge expires.


If your application is unsuccessful

We will write to inform you and refund your payment. If you do not agree with the decision the letter you received will tell you how to appeal. We will confirm by email the results of the appeal; this decision is final. Applicants may reapply for a Blue Badge after 6 months, (or earlier if mobility has deteriorated significantly).


Expired Badges

Expired badges must be returned to Walsall Council. It is illegal to use one and there are heavy fines if one is used.
