Details

This is the Department for Transport’s (DfT’s) non-statutory guidance to local authorities in England on the Blue Badge scheme. It provides local authorities with good practice advice on administering and enforcing the scheme and replaces the previous guidance issued in 2012.

This guidance was informed by an independent programme of work, undertaken for DfT, by Integrated Transport Planning Ltd (ITP) and the TAS Partnership Ltd (TAS). The final report about this work, referred to in the guidance as the ‘independent review’, has now been published.
