Blue Badge reforms

On 14 February 2011 the Government announced a major programme of reforms to the Blue Badge scheme, the most comprehensive changes to the disabled parking scheme since its establishment in the 1970s.

The reform programme, including an increase in the price of the issuing fee from £2.00 to £10.00, was developed in consultation with disabled people, local authorities and other stakeholders. From the consultation it was evident that the scheme needed to be modernised to reduce current levels of fraud and abuse and also deal with future challenges.

Full details about the Blue Badge reform and a selection of supporting documents are available on the Department for Transport website.
