Badge renewal Blues for Blude Badge holders…

by awitherick on 30 March, 2012

If you, or someone you know has a blue badge- check the expiry NOW!

It’s one of those things which has to be done every so often (three years from now on).  But the Conservative run Council just can’t keep up with things.

Currently, there is up to an eight weeks delay in providing the new badges – ie you could be without it for two months if you leave it until the last minute to renew!

Unfortunately the expectation is that this will continue even after the current high volumes decrease.  It might improve slightly, to may be a four to six weeks delay, but this isn’t great!

Therefore, when renewing blue badges, it is advisable to submit applications at least eight weeks before the old badge runs out of date.

The Liberal Democrats have asked the police to try and take this in to account if people run in to difficulties.

The new badge was introduced in January of this year, so it is expected that everyone will have the new style three-year badge by the end of January 2013.
