Free resident permits for Blue Badge holders

Free resident parking e-permit for Blue Badge holders to help to deter theft.  

You are entitled to a free resident permit if you are a blue badge holder provided your vehicle is registered to your home address.

Once granted, the e-permit allows you to park anywhere in your home Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ). This free e-permit is virtual, so you don't need to display anything in your car.

The free resident permit allows parking in ‘resident permit holder’ bays OR resident permit holder shared use bays (that’s ‘resident permit holder’ bays shared with other permit holders) ONLY. If you do park in other bays you run this risk of receiving a Penalty Charge Notice.

When parking outside your zone the free resident permit is only valid during resident roamer hours. On all other occasions you will need to display your blue badge.

For more information please call 020 7527 2000 or email blue.badge@islington.gov.uk

When parking away from the zones your e-permit is valid, where you will need to display your Blue Badge, you can buy a Blue Badge protector to help to deter thieves.
