Request a review of your application decision

5 November 2018

If your application has been refused, you can write to us to request a review of the decision within 6 months of the date you were notified of the outcome.

Your written request must include:

  • The reason why you feel the decision is incorrect 
  • If appropriate, any new supporting information from a Health Care Professional not previously considered detailing your condition/s and how this/these impact your mobility

Please send us your reasons in writing to or:

The application will be reviewed by the issuing authority (Essex County Council) and, we may ask you to attend a mobility assessment or a further mobility assessment where one has already been carried out. The re-assessment will be carried out by a different assessor from the individual that completed your original assessment.

If your appeal is unsuccessful, you cannot re-apply for 6 months unless there is a significant change in your mobility.
