Other Information

From 3 April 2017 disabled motorists will no longer automatically receive free parking with a Blue Badge.
Even if you have a Blue Badge, you will need to pay to park in the disabled bays in Waverley's car parks, using the parking machines or RingGo. Motorists parking in a disabled bay should still display their Blue Badge.
The maximum stay for a disabled bay is three hours.
Waverley Borough Council offers a free parking permit for disabled residents on income related benefit.  The permit will have the same life span as the Blue Badge and entitles the motorist to park in Waverley's car parks for free when displaying both their Blue Badge and permit, face up in the front windscreen.
Motorists with both a Blue Badge and disabled parking permit may park in any disabled bay free of charge for a maximum of three hours.
The motorist can also park in a general bay that is not reserved for any other person or permit holder. The general bays are free of charge for a unrestricted amount of time when displaying both the permit and Blue Badge.
If you receive income related benefits and have a blue badge, please apply for a permit using the following link:
If you have any other queries please contact Waverley’s Parking Team on 01483 523408 or email

News from North East Hampshire & Farnham CCG

Earlier this year North East Hampshire and Farnham was chosen as one of a handful of sites nationwide where local clinicians and practitioners will work with communities to create and operate new, joined-up health and care services.

Our Vanguard programme has an overall aim of keeping people “happy, health and living at home” wherever possible. It will see local people supported to improve their own health and wellbeing and when they are ill or needing support, they will receive the best possible care.

The programme will focus on:

  • prevention and self-care - helping people to manage their own health condition, empowering them to make choices about their care and ensuring the right services are available to all our communities;
  • integrated teams of specialist health and social care professionals - establishing teams of community nurses, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, social workers, a psychiatric nurse and a psychiatrist, a pharmacist, a specialist in care of the elderly, GPs, the voluntary sector, and specialists in palliative care and domiciliary care. These teams will be located in Farnham, Aldershot, Farnborough, Fleet and Yateley;
  • enhanced community care services - for people in their own homes, in GP surgeries and local, community hospitals;
  • access into and out of specialist inpatient care - in community hospitals (such as in Farnham and Fleet) as well as Frimley Park Hospital.

The Vanguard programme is a partnership between NHS North East Hampshire and Farnham Clinical Commissioning Group, Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust, Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust, Surrey and Borders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, Virgin Care, South East Coast Ambulance NHS Foundation Trust, North Hampshire Urgent Care and Hampshire and Surrey County Councils and all GP surgeries of the NE Hampshire and Farnham area.

We are also working with you, the patient, the public and voluntary organisations to help shape, develop and continually improve the way services are provided.
