Blue Badge Scheme – Pilot - Extension to Eligibility until 31 March 2017

Published on January 24th 2017

Blue Badge Scheme – Pilot - Extension to Eligibility until 31 March 2017

Transport Scotland is currently piloting the inclusion of people who, as a result of a diagnosed mental disorder or cognitive impairment, have no awareness of danger from traffic as eligible for a Blue Badge.  This could include children with Autism or Down’s Syndrome.  To apply you need to complete a paper application form. 

The Scheme ceases at the end of March when the Scottish Government will then collate the data and make a decision on whether the scheme is to be continued.  

Please note that this pilot is being run separately from the rest of the Blue Badge scheme, by way of a separate paper application form only. The online form cannot be used to apply for a badge under this pilot.

To apply contact SIC Transport Planning department for an application on 01595 744868.
