Changes to the Blue Badge parking scheme

August 30, 2019 1 min read

As of today Friday 30th August 2019 as well as people with Mobility Disabilities who get at least 8 Mobility points for PIP or can not walk more than 50 meters people with less visible disabilities who have a need to park near now can apply. This includes conditions like Autism or brain injuries or significant mental health issues or dementia, Parkinson’s and arthritis as well as other conditions.

There is a need for more blue badge parking throughout the UK and importantly for people not to misuse the spaces when they do not qualify for a blue badge for example sitting in the space waiting to pick someone up or simple ignoring they do not have a badge. It can take up to 12 weeks for a blue badge to be sent once the paperwork is complete with your county council.
