    I am not aware of any changes in European legislation that effect the Blue Badge scheme. If you have a dispute with your local autority over your entitlement I suggest you make an appointment with your local Citizes Advice Bureau.

    Go back and asked the council for the EU regulation, because the EU has not done anything much for five years, although the last changes in the UK was in 2011.

    But it's up to each council to interpret the regulations, some will have face to face interviews, some will have medicals and some will accept a letter from GP's but less and less are now accepting this.

    If you had a blue badge once before ask why has it now changed.

    But the rules is about mobility more these days, if you have limited mobility then you should be given a badge.

    I had a look at the Gov site and the criteria for qualifying is still the same.

    Have you checked your councils site?
