Blue Badge Scheme

Colchester Borough Council is dedicated to understanding and serving the needs of all our residents with disabilities. We work along side our Parking Services to ensure that on and off road parking is continually monitored in relation to everyone's needs.

The Council provides 3 FREE hours parking in all off street car parks to Blue Badge holders. Blue badge holders must display the badge on the dashboard with the front of the badge facing upwards, showing the wheelchair symbol, and the clock set at the time of arrival. The badge should be able to be clearly read through the windscreen.

All on-street parking is operated by the North Essex Parking Partnership. However, we understand that restrictions can vary from district to district and for this reason, we have created this information page to assist blue badge holders when parking in Colchester.
