As a result of the current situation with the Corona Virus (Covid-19) and following Government guidelines, there will be no face-to-face Blue Badge Assessments for the next 12 weeks with immediate effect.
If an Assessment is required, this will be carried out via telephone and you will be notified accordingly of the date and time.
If you are applying for a Blue Badge renewal, you will be required to apply on-line and your Badge will be issued in due course.
If you have a Blue Badge, which has recently expired, or due to expire within the next 12 weeks, please submit your on-line application and continue to use your existing Badge in the interim period.
Other ways of applying
If you cannot apply on-line, call us on 01922 653560 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for help with making an application.
