Send your completed form to:

Camden Accessible Travel Solutions

You must also send proof that you live, work or study in the area. Your employer or place of study must provide a letter:

  • confirming your place of employment or study
  • the number of hours, days, months that you work or study in the area
  • on letter headed paper
  • signed by an official

You can nominate up to three vehicles in which the badge can be used. You can use your badge in one vehicle at a time, on the days indicated on your application form.

Using your badge

Displaying your badge

You must display your badge in your windscreen with the barcode facing upwards. Otherwise a parking ticket could be issued or your vehicle could be removed.

If you wish to park in a residents, metered or pay-and display bay, your blue and green badges should be clearly displayed on the dashboard. If you wish to park in a blue badge bay, you will only require your blue badge. Your expiry date and issuing authority need to be visible on your blue badge.

Lost or stolen badges

If your badge is lost or stolen you must report it to the police.

You’ll then need to complete a lost or stolen form (PDF).

We will replace stolen badges for free if you give a crime reference number. Other replacements cost £10.

Green badge misuse

You must not lend your badge to anyone else. This could result in your badge being taken away. It is a criminal offence:

  • for able bodied people to use your badge - if they do they are liable for a fine of up to £1,000
  • to make a false statement for the purpose of getting a badge - this can result in a fine of up to £2,500
