Campaign to promote blue badge holder benefits

Bromsgrove district council is launching a campaign to remind blue badge holders about the benefits they receive when using the authority’s car parks.

The Blue Badge scheme is national and benefits vary from authority to authority.

Blue Badge Holders parking in Bromsgrove’s Pay and Display car parks receive a free hour of parking on top of their paid expiry time. In the District’s Pay on Foot car park they can obtain as smart card which enables them to receive the same benefit.

The Council has launched the ‘Blue Badge Benefits in Bromsgrove’ campaign to highlight this to residents and to visitors to the town.

Reminders will be put on signs in car parks to coincide with new ones being put in place as place as the Council takes over Civil Parking Enforcement from the Police from May 30.

The campaign also includes Twitter feeds, Facebook updates, website pages and press articles – and coverage in the Summer edition of Together Bromsgrove.

Cllr Mike Webb, whose Portfolio covers parking said: “The Blue Badge scheme is national but has ‘local’ benefits for each authority.

“We wanted to take the chance to update our signs as part of the parking changes which are happening anyway so there’s less cost to the customer and will build on this using as many other free communication channels as possible.”
