Blue Badge Misuse
Currently when an offender is caught misusing the blue badge the council will either issue a warning letter or prosecute the individual. A third option is being considered, a Community Resolution. When a criminal offence is committed regarding Blue Badge Misuse, the offender would be required to attend a session at a council office, where they watch a video and sign the police community resolution. This means gives the chance for disabled people to convey the negative impacts from their point of view.
At this meeting we had a talk from Yvonne Hervey (council) and Pc Deniro (police).
