You must display both your White and Blue Badge while parking or driving.
The details of your badges should be clearly visible. If you fail to display your badges you may be issued with a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN).
If a protected characteristic, listed in the Equality Act 2010, or another condition makes it difficult for you to challenge or pay your PCN, we’ll be happy to consider what reasonable adjustments we can make to assist.
To request an adjustment please email: [email protected] or call our Parking Services Team on 0207 823 4567.
