Blue Badge Scheme

The Blue Badge Scheme is to help disabled people who have severe mobility problems lead independent lives by knowing that when they reach a destination, either as a driver or passenger, that they will be able to park near to a venue and therefore have easier access to the services they want to use. In Scotland, the Blue Badge Scheme has been permanently open to people living with dementia since 2018.

The Blue Badge allows badge holders to park on street. It does not apply to off street privately operated car parks, such as supermarket car parks or to privately owned roads. However, there may be concessions for badge holders in these areas and you should check for signs detailing these. It allows on street, free parking without time restriction.

There is a £20 fee for a blue badge in the Stirling area.

If your application is turned down, you can ask for a review of this by contacting the Blue Badge Section of Stirling Council’s Public Transport Unit within 4 weeks of receipt of your refusal letter.
