Appeal a blue badge decision

 

Blue badges are issued under the Chronically Sick and Disabled Persons Act 1970 section 21. Applications are considered based on what you have told us and assessed against Department for Transport rules.

If, after applying, you have not been awarded a badge but you feel you are still eligible, please follow the instructions on the refusal letter we send you.

To appeal the decision, you must notify us in writing within 28 days, giving your reasons and providing any additional evidence supporting your original application.
   
As part of the appeal process we will need to share your information with our occupational therapist department and you may be asked to attend a mobility clinic with an occupational therapist.

If your mobility or condition deteriorates significantly and you are able to produce medical evidence of this, or if you are awarded the higher rate mobility component of the Disability Living Allowance or Personal Independence Payments where you have scored 8 points or more in the 'Moving Around' descriptor of the Mobility Component you may reapply.
