Blue badges and disabled parking
If you have a permanent disability that effects your mobility, you could get a blue badge.
If you have a blue badge you can park in:
- most disabled bays
- pay and display bays
- shared use bays
Read the Department of Transport’s guide to find out if you can get a blue badge.
Disabled and carers parking
If you have a blue badge, you can also apply for a parking bay outside or near your home. You need to be the driver or live with the driver, and have no off street parking like a garage or driveway.
To apply for a bay, download a disabled bay application form (PDF 405KB).
Carers can also apply for a parking permit to use in permit bays or shared use bays. Find out about how to apply for a carers parking permit.
Transport for people with mobility difficulties
If you have difficulty with your mobility, or you're a wheelchair user, Community Transport can help. This organisation provides safe and affordable transport for people who can’t easily access public transport.
They run the Easylink shopping bus, and also provide transport to lunch clubs and for social trips.
Using locked disabled toilets in the city
You'll need a radar key to use locked disabled toilets in Brighton & Hove.
If you have a disability, or you think you need one because of other health reasons, you can apply for a radar key.
If you find it difficult to walk because of a permanent disability, you could borrow a wheelchair from the NHS.
We can't refer you for a wheelchair, a GP needs to refer you.
