Report misuse of a blue badge

A blue badge remains the property of the Council and we can ask for the badge to be returned if it is being misused.

It is a criminal offence to display:

  • an out of date blue badge
  • a family or friend’s blue badge without the badge holder being present
  • a stolen blue badge
  • a forged or counterfeit blue badge
  • a deceased person’s blue badge.

Blue badge misuse is a criminal offence which can lead to:

  • a fine
  • a criminal record, and
  • removal of the badge.
