Easy Read Form

Easy to read forms

If you find it hard to fill in the form, you can use the Easy Read form instead.

You must print out the form first.

Everybody must fill in sections A, B and E.

At the end of Section B it tells you if you need to fill in sections C and D.

Returning the Blue Badge

You must return the badge to the council if:

  • the badge has expired
  • your medical condition or mobility improves and you are no longer eligible
  • a replacement badge has been issued for one that is lost or stolen and the original is found / recovered - then the original badge must be returned
  • the badge becomes damaged or faded and is illegible
  • the badge is no longer required, for example should you be confined to the house

Please also note that the badge should be returned to the council on the death of the badge holder. If you continue to display the badge when you no longer need it you may be fined up to £1,000.

To return a badge please send it by post to the Concessionary Travel Team address at the bottom of this page.
