Blue badge eligibility

New Blue Badge rules in England to come into force on 30 August

Last year the government announced its intention to expand the blue badge rules in England to make it easier for people with hidden disabilities such as autism to qualify. However, no date was provided for these new rules coming into force.

Now the government has published regulations confirming that these new rules will start to apply from the 30 August 2019.  You can find out more here https://contact.org.uk/news-and-blogs/new-blue-badge-rules-in-england-to-come-into-force-on-30-august/?fbclid=IwAR1fHixEwU1zTiGpCH39SWfjI91zLtLvuKaMtul9F-THw0u12M4DB7OsRyM
