Blue badge scheme
The Blue Badge enables individuals to park in any of these place in Gwynedd:
- Long stay car parks (all day)
- Short stay car parks (all day)
- A parking space on a street (all day)
- On double yellow lines (for 3 hours, your blue badge must be displayed with the time you parked there, see the National Blue Badge Guidelines for terms and conditions regarding parking on double yellow lines)
You can apply for a Blue Badge for yourself, or a relative can apply on your behalf. There will be no cost for the badge.
An organisation which cares for disabled people can apply too. There will be a £10 fee for badges for organisations.
