Apply for a Blue Badge Click to get info
Before you can apply for a new Blue Badge you’ll need to pay a £10 administration fee. If your application is unsuccessful, we’ll refund the fee by the method you paid with.
There is no charge for replacement badges if the original card has been stolen or is faded. You’ll need to give us either a copy of the crime report which includes the crime reference number, or return the faded badge.
To pay by phone with a debit or credit card, call Waltham Forest Direct on 020 8496 3000.
