Report misuse

If you think someone is using a Blue Badge that they’re not entitled to, or parking in a disabled bay when they should not, you can report Blue Badge misuse in Medway by emailing us on blue.badges@medway.gov.uk or by calling us on 01634 333 333.

If the misuse happened outside Medway, report it to the relevant local council.

If someone is found to be misusing a Blue Badge their entitlement may be reviewed and they could be fined or prosecuted if there is enough evidence of the misuse.

Misuse includes:

  • using a badge when the badge holder isn’t travelling in the car
  • using a badge that belongs to a person who has now died
  • using an out of date badge
  • continuing to use a badge when you no longer need it instead of returning it to us

To help us investigate misuse, please give us as much information as you can. This includes:

  • the serial number of the badge
  • a description of the misuse
  • the address or location where the vehicle was parked
  • the name of the badge holder or the misuser (if known)
  • the vehicle make
  • the vehicle colour
  • the registration number (if known)

We can only deal with reports for misuse of the badge in Medway Council car parks or on public highways. If it is a private car park, such as a supermarket, you’ll have to contact the person responsible for the car park.
