Blue Badge misuse reporting

Blue Badge holders can park in places other drivers can’t.

The Blue Badge is linked to a person rather than to a vehicle, so it can be used with any car, including taxis and hire cars that the holder is driving, or travelling in as a passenger.

We investigate reports of Blue Badge misuse on public roads across Norfolk. This means on-street parking only.  Off-street car parks, such as those provided in local authority, hospital or supermarket car parks are owned and run by separate organisations.  Please do not report any issues that take place in these car parks to us, instead please report them to the company that owns the site.

Use the form below to report when you have noticed that:

  • The badge holder was not in the vehicle for the whole or part of the journey
  • An expired badge was used
  • Someone used a fake or altered badge

To efficiently deal with an offender Enforcement Officers ideally need to witness the offence.  It is helpful if you tell as a pattern of misuse such as times, days and location. This is not so important where photographic evidence of an expired badge being used is submitted.

If you suspect that a person got a Blue Badge by a false application, for example by saying they are disabled or have difficulty walking, which is untrue, this needs to be reported to the Department for Work and Pensions.
