If your application is successful an administration charge of £2.81 (for new or replacement) will be made. Payment should be made by cheque or by cash payment at the CHCP Area Office on collection of your badge.

 

West Dunbartonshire Council may refuse to issue a badge if we have reason to believe that the applicant is not who they claim to be or that the badge would be used by someone other than the person to whom it has been issued.
