There are two types of Disabled Parking Permits
Category One: (Blue Permit)
A blue permit allows permit holders with significant intellectual or ambulatory disabilities to park a vehicle in a bay reserved for disabled motorists, or to park in an ordinary area or bay for twice the specified time.
Category Two: (Green Permit)
A green permit allows permit holders who require rest breaks when walking to park a vehicle in an ordinary area or bay for twice the specified time. Category Two (green permit) holders are not permitted to park in 'disabled persons' parking bays.
How do I get a Disabled Parking Permit
Disabled Parking permits may be allocated for a driver, passenger or both. To obtain a disabled parking permit an application form needs to be completed by the applicant and their doctor and then returned to us. On return of the application form an assessment criteria set by 'VicRoads' will be utilized to determine what category permit the applicant is eligible for.
Application forms can be obtained from one of our Customer Service Centres, or by calling us on 9205 2200 or you can download the Disabled Parking Permit Application form.pdf (29.89 kb)
Note: Permits are only issued to residents of Hume City Council. Residents from other Council's need to apply for a disabled parking permit from their own Council.
Damaged Disabled Parking Permits
You can still use your disabled parking permit even if it is damaged as long as the permit number and expiry date are still readable. If a replacement permit is required you can visit one of our Customer Service Centres or call us on 9205 2200 and a new permit will be printed with the same permit number and expiry date.
Lost or Stolen Disabled Parking Permit
If your Disabled Parking Permit is lost or stolen a Statutory Declaration must be presented signed by the respective person at one of our Customer Service Centres. On receipt of the statutory declaration another permit will be issued.
What is the difference between a Blue and a Green Disabled Parking Permit?
A Blue permit allows the holder to park in a Disabled car park. A Green permit does not allow the holder to park in a disabled car park but provide the holder with double the time period to park in a timed car park.
Why have I been given a Green Disabled Parking Permit and not a Blue one?
Due to the demand level for disabled car parks, Blue disabled Parking Permits are only given to people with significant disability requiring the need of a complex walking aide, or caregiver. Green permits are given to those that require rest breaks when walking.
