Blue Badge

If your application is refused

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 email or post your reasons in writing to the Blue Badge team

The application will be reviewed by the issuing authority (Essex County Council).

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 you applied under non-visible (hidden) disabilities we may request further information from you.

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