Changes from 30 August 2019

The government is introducing new legislation on the eligibility for obtaining a Blue Badge.  As well as the current legislation for physical disabilities, the new criteria will include people with non-physical ('hidden') disabilities.

The new legislation starts on 30 August 2019. We will not hold applications in advance of this date. Please do not apply for a badge under non-physical ('hidden') disabilities criteria until the legislation comes into law. 

We'll be making some changes on the way badges are processed and applied for. We'll update our information on 30 August 2019 to explain Blue Badges and how to apply under the new eligibility criteria.

Further information about the  new Blue Badge eligibility is available from the Department of Transport.
