If you have a permanent, substantial disability which means you cannot walk or find walking considerably difficult, or are registered blind with the Jersey Blind Society Incorporated, then you are eligible for the blue badge disabled parking scheme. Download and print an application form here or pick one up from the Customer Services Department at the Town Hall. Alternatively, you can telephone the Team on 811733 and have a form posted out to you.
How to apply for a blue badge
You need to fill out an application form, which is available from the Town Hall or to download and print here. The forms will usually include a section that your doctor has to complete or, if you have impaired sight, you will need to produce a letter from Eyecan. Completed forms should be sent back to the Town Hall.
You also need to include two recent passport type photographs, both of which need to be signed on the back, and a fee of £15. If you are renewing your permit your old badge must be submitted before the Customer Services Team can issue you with your new one.
How to display a blue badge
You must display the badge on top of the dashboard of the vehicle with the front of the badge (the side showing the wheelchair symbol) facing forward. The relevant details should be clearly visible from the outside of the windscreen.
Failure to display the badge correctly will result in a parking penalty being issued.
When requested by a parking official, you must show your photograph on the back of the badge to confirm your identity.
Use of badges from other countries in Jersey
All European style blue badges are accepted in Jersey.
Badges issued outside of the EU can be used at the discretion of the parking authority. You should ask at Parking Control in Sand Street car park.
UK badge holders should note that vehicles may not park on a yellow line at any time.
