Blue Badge Holders

Premium Set Down has 4 bays adjacent to the Pre-Booked area set aside for disabled drivers. If you’re a Blue Badge holder, you’ll need to display a permit or your blue badge while you’re on your break. To do this, you will need to go to the nearby Cabin to fill out a form and collect your permit. If you want to take the blue badge with you, then please make sure you display the permit in the window, which is effectively a temporary blue badge.

Please remember to bring all the details from your confirmation email, including the reference number, as this allows us to process your permit more quickly
