Appeal against a Blue Badge application decision

If we’ve turned down your Blue Badge application it may be because:

  • you did not provide enough evidence
  • you failed to pay the fee
  • we believe you are not the person you are claiming to be
  • we believe you would allow other people to use your badge
  • you hold (or have held) a badge and misuse has led to at least three relevant convictions.

If you disagree with our decision, you can ask us to look at your application again (appeal). You need to do this within 10 days of us telling you that we have rejected your application.

If you have a Hidden Disability and are appealing under the ‘hidden disability Blue Badge route’, you must read this guidance before starting your appeal.
