What to do if you spot Blue Badge Misuse

Earlier in the year we reported on blue badge misuse and the lack of prosecutions.

We recently contacted SEPP about the misuse of blue badges to find out what Essex County Councils policy is. We’ve been sent the following information

The South Essex Parking Partnership can issue a Penalty Charge Notice for all issues relating to vehicles parking in a designated blue badge spaces without correctly displaying a valid blue badge.

Essex County Council are the authority who issue Blue Badges and they are responsible for dealing with any issues of misuse. The following link will take you to the relevant website where misuse of a blue badge can be reported : Report misuse
