Can I appeal my decision regarding the refusal of my blue badge application

There is no statutory appeals process against a decision made by a local authority on a blue badge application.

We follow guidance set by the Welsh Government but they do not have the power to intervene in the assessment of individual cases.

If you do not agree with the decision made not to award a blue badge to you and you have extra information or evidence you wish to present that was not provided with your original application, please telephone the Contact Centre on 01633-644644. We will then review the decision taking into account the additional evidence.

If you do not agree with the decision made not to award a blue badge to you but do not have any extra information or evidence you wish to present, we will look at the decision again but it is unlikely to be changed.

How Much Does a Blue Badge cost?

Individual Blue Badges in Wales are free. There is a replacement charge of £10.00 if the badge is lost. Organisational Blue Badges cost £10.00.

My blue badge expires soon. When should I apply for a new badge?

You should apply at least 6-8 weeks before your current badge expires. Each reapplication is assessed from new even if you have received a badge in the past.

I am partially sighted do I automatically qualify?

No, applicants need to be registered blind/severely sight impaired and provide their BD8 or CVI registration form.

What should I do with an expired badge?

Do I need support from my GP to support my application?

No, we will contact you if we require further information.
