Blue Badge parking rules and entitlements
For further details and more information on the parking rules and Blue Badge entitlement for individual councils view the GOV.UK website.
If you are turned down for the scheme, you have a right to appeal. The appeals procedure(pdf, 68KB) outlines the two stages of appeal.
In a stage one appeal you are invited to provide further medical evidence and an appeal statement to explain why you believe yourself to be eligible for the scheme. If unsuccessful at stage one appeal, you have the option of a stage two appeal, which is when your case is heard by the Appeals Sub-Committee; a panel of Councillors who review your case and make a final decision.
The Appeals Sub-Committee procedure(pdf, 52KB) outlines what you can expect from a stage two appeal hearing. The guidelines for the determination of a stage two appeal(pdf, 134KB) explains how the final decision is made at a stage two appeal.
