How do I apply?

Download a paper form


By Appointment Only (Tuesdays and Thursdays)
Coed Pella
Conwy Road
Colwyn Bay
LL29 7AZ

You can check if you are eligible (PDF) for a Blue Badge by visiting the Welsh Government website.  You will need to send specific evidence documents with your application and these will be detailed on the application form.

A Blue Badge is valid for a period of 3 years and a temporary badge for 12 months.

Where can I park?

The Blue Badge is not a licence to park anywhere.  When you receive a Blue Badge it is important that you do not park where it would be obstructive to others, or where it would pose a danger to others.  In Conwy:

  • Badge holders may park free of charge and without time limit at parking meters and pay-and-display on-street parking unless a local traffic order, specifying a time limit for holders of disabled parking badges, is in force.
  • Badge holders may be exempt from limits on parking times imposed on other users (check local signs for information).
  • Badge holders may usually park on single or double yellow lines for up to 3 hours. The parking disc must display your time of arrival.

What if my application is unsuccessful?

The decision to issue or not issue a Blue Badge rests solely with Conwy County Borough Council.  There is no right of appeal against the decision other than to the secretary of State within 28 days of you receiving the rejection letter.

A copy of the reassessment procedure will be sent out to you.  A reassessment can be considered if there is significant additional medical information available which affects mobility and was not included with your original application.

If you wish to request a reassessment please write to us within 28 days of receiving our rejection letter, providing the additional medical information.

How do I return a badge that is no longer required?

The Blue Badge remains the property of Conwy County Borough Council.  If it is no longer required you need to return it to:

Blue Badge
PO Box 1
LL30 9GN

How can I get a replacement clock for my badge?

What if my details change?

Please contact us if you change your name or address or if you get a new car with a different registration number.  We won’t charge you for making the changes.
