Misuse of a Blue Badge

West Sussex County Council and the district and borough councils, in partnership with Sussex Police, enforce the correct use of Blue Badges.

Full details on your Blue Badge rights and responsibilities are available from the GOV.UK site. Information includes who can use the badge, how it must be displayed, who has the power to inspect it and when it must be returned.

If you have received a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) as a result of incorrectly displaying or misusing your Blue Badge and you wish to challenge it or make an appeal, please follow the instructions on the reverse of the PCN and contact the issuing authority. Find out more in our Parking shops section.

If you suspect someone is using a Blue Badge illegally please contact us, providing as much information as possible such as:

  • the Blue Badge holder's name and date of birth;
  • the Blue Badge serial number;
  • the town and street location of where the claimed misuse occurred; and
  • the time and date of when the claimed misuse occurred.
