To ask the Scottish Government what guidelines it produces for local authorities when they are assessing individuals for the Blue Badge scheme.

Answered by: Humza Yousaf 14 November 2016

Transport Scotland provides general, non-statutory guidance to local authorities about how they can go about administering the blue badge scheme. It is for local authorities, however, to ensure that they are adhering to the statutory criteria for obtaining a blue badge.
