Application forms are available, on request, from local authorities. which are responsible for the administration of the Blue Badge Scheme. There is no statutory procedure that they are required to follow for the production or distribution of the forms.

It is for individual local authorities to allocate appropriate resources to administer the Blue Badge Scheme. Under existing regulations they are able to charge up to £2 for each badge they issue, to contribute towards these costs.
