Disabled parking and blue badge

The blue badge scheme provides a range of parking concessions for people with mobility problems.

People with severe mobility problems may be entitled to Special Access Parking Permits, which allow access to designated spaces within Mansfield town centre on certain days of the week.

To apply for a blue badge and for more details about the scheme, visit Nottinghamshire County Council's website (opens in a new window).

People with a blue badge are allowed to park in a disabled parking bay, providing their parking badge is displayed correctly with the expiry date showing. If the disabled bays are taken, you can park your vehicle in the other bays.

Disabled parking is free in all parking bays in council run car parks except the following where the standard fee if payable:

Privately run car parks may charge.

Blue badge holders are expected to follow the terms and conditions of the individual car parks.

Blue badge holders may park for up to three hours on yellow lines using a valid badge and clock but must adhere to any other restrictions and the Highway Code.

For parking in pedestrian areas, a special access permit is available from Nottinghamshire County Council (opens in a new window).
