Welfare Rights / Re: My call-up papers have arrived
« Last post by Fiz on August 18, 2018, 09:31:53 AM »
I've had a blue badge for 6+ years now, only being awarded any benefit for mobility this year. I've never had a physical assessment. I filled in a form and the orthopaedic consultant's letter and radiographers report together with a GP letter went off with my form. So I was only talking of my experience. My blue badge has never had anything to do with a benefit.

Blue Badges are directly connected with benefits in England, in exactly the same way as in Scotland because the legislation is UK wide.  This is a provision that's been in place for a very long time.  Its only the transitional arrangements that were recent changes and can vary from UK jurisdiction to jurisdiction. 

If you received the higher rate mobility component of DLA or receive the Enhanced Mobility Component of PIP then you have an automatic right to receive a Blue Badge without any further assessment.  Its called a passported benefit.  Such Blue Badges are issued for a period of 3 years at a time

If you are not in receipt of either of those specific benefits then you can apply to the Local Authority for a Blue Badge which they can decide to issue (or not) under the Discretionary Rules.  They call you for an assessment and can ask for a medical report to help them decide.  They can issue a Blue Badge for a shorter period then the standard 3 years.

Were you on Disability Trust property? If so I suspect they may have a no cold calling policy to protect any vulnerable residents. Any canvasers may have to get prior permission. It would have been courteous to give an explanation.

I don't see they have any right to stop you elsewhere.

I was looking at this and according to the rules its already illegal in UK to park on the pavement, I think the issue is that councils don't enforce it.  I'm not sure why you were asked to stop though.

Here, blue badges have nothing at all with benefits. The LA assess how far you can walk, how much pain you're in while walking and how does the walking leave you physically after the walk. They also asked about ability to carry something, I forget the weight but if your physical condition remains unchanged auntie then you blue badge is yours to use. I'm in England.

Were you getting all your signatures - and trying to obtain more - from one single address?  That's the only reason I can think of for some official to have a problem with it...
