Blue Badges

Blue Badge misuse

The council work regularly with Hertfordshire Constabulary to ensure that only those who are entitled to a blue badge are using it to park.

Known as 'Operation Clamp', our Fraud team and Parking Service have been carrying out on-street checks with the Police since 2013 with the intention of prosecuting motorists found to be misusing badges. Using a badge when you are not entitled to it or borrowing it off the badge holder can reduce the amount of available parking for genuine disabled people and so the council are committed to pursuing prosecutions.

If you suspect that a motorist is regularly misusing a blue badge, please report this to the Parking Service on 01923 278890 or, by email, to
