The Council is committed to taking action against Blue Badge fraud and misuse and in serious cases, the Council will prosecute offenders. A badge can be withdrawn if it is misused or the badge holder allows others to misuse it.
It is a criminal offence to display a Blue Badge unless the badge holder is in the vehicle, or the vehicle is being used to pick up or drop off the holder.
It is also a criminal offence for non-disabled people to use a Badge. If they do so, they are liable to a fine of up to £1000.
