Blue Badge Scheme: Consultation on eligibility

The Department for Transport has committed to look again at how the blue badge scheme works for people with hidden disabilities, to ensure that the rules and guidance are clear and that those with the greatest needs have access to a Blue Badge. This accords with the government’s manifesto commitment to give equal weight to mental and physical health conditions.


This consultation document discusses the key issues involved, and presents ideas for improving the rules. The challenge will be to ensure a scheme that is both sustainable and works for all who are eligible for it, whatever their disability.
