Consultation on the Blue Badge disabled parking scheme

The Disabled Person's Parking Badge Scheme ("the Blue Badge Scheme") was introduced in 1971 to provide a national arrangement of on-street parking concessions for people with severe mobility problems. The latest review of the scheme took place between 1999 and 2002. This culminated in the production of 47 recommendations by The Disabled Persons Transport Advisory Committee (DPTAC), the Government's statutory advisers on the public passenger transport needs of severely disabled people. The Government responded in 2002 and decided that some of the DPTAC recommendations required additional research and further cross governmental consideration. We aim to finish this consideration by completing a short, three month strategic review of the scheme that will report in September 2007 and contribute to the formulation of a Blue Badge Reform strategy by April 2008. The strategic review will address all the outstanding DPTAC recommendations, including the possible issuing of temporary badges and broader extension of the eligibility criteria, to other groups.
