You can report misuse of a Blue Badge to us in confidence at email@example.com. We need to know:
- where the misuse occurred,
- when the misuse occurred,
- the Blue Badge number
- and as much detail as possible.
We take all suspected fraud and misuse of Blue Badges seriously and will investigate all reports, contacting the badge holder directly for an explanation if appropriate.
We also work with the police, borough and district councils and other local authorities to investigate reports. Blue badge misuse can lead to fines of up to £1,000 and possible prosecutions.
Please be aware that the criteria for blue badges changed at the end of August 2019 to include non-visible "hidden" disabilities and so some people who are eligible for a Blue Badge may not show visible disabilities.
Due to confidentiality issues we cannot disclose details of ongoing investigations, but please be assured we will investigate every report of misuse.
