Blue badge scheme
The blue badge scheme allows drivers or passengers with severe mobility problems to park close to where they need to go. Local authorities process blue badge applications in accordance with the DfT guidelines. Information can be found here:
All currently charge a £10 administration fee for successful applications.
The following are eligible for blue badges:
those who receive a War Pensioners Mobility Supplement

Furthermore, you have been certified by the Service Personnel and Veterans agency as having a permanent and substantial disability; which causes inability to walk or very considerable difficulty in walking.
