A new processing system means leisure centres in Ashbourne and Bakewell will not be able to deal with Gold Card applications after 25 September.
Gold Card application forms can however be obtained from the libraries in Ashbourne and Bakewell or downloaded and posted to:
Derbyshire Dales District Council,
Town Hall, Matlock,
Derbyshire, DE4 3NN.
New applications can also be made in person at the Town Hall.
Existing Gold Card holders who have a query about their card can call the District Council on 01629 761199 and can renew their card online.
The Gold Card is Derbyshire County Council's travel, discount and library card for older people and people with certain disabilities, enabling free off-peak travel on local buses throughout the whole of England, together with discounts at around 700 shops and other local businesses.
Gold Card holders can also use community transport dial-a-bus services.
