If you suspect the misuse of a Blue Badge, please report this to us.
Suspected fraudulent and misuse of a Blue Badge is taken seriously and all reports will be investigated.
It can include:
Our Civil Enforcement team, the police and other local authorities will work alongside us to investigate all reports. In serious cases, our anti-fraud team will investigate further if required. Blue Badge misuse can lead to fines of up to £1,000, prosecution and in some cases, withdrawal of the Blue Badge service for persistent misuse.
Civil Enforcement officers have legal powers to inspect and confiscate a Blue Badge at the roadside if they think it is being misused. Please be aware that it is a criminal offence to refuse a request to inspect or surrender your badge.
There is no appeal process against a decision made by us to refuse a Blue Badge. However, if you have been refused and you disagree with the decision or can provide more information which may support a successful application, then you can ask us to reconsider, by submitting your request in writing within 28 days of the decision.
If applicable, you may be asked to attend a mobility assessment with an occupational therapist.
