Refusal, withdrawals and renewals

Help to renew your badge. Information on why your application might be refused or withdrawn.

blue badge


A refusal by Hillingdon Council to issue a Blue Badge will be accompanied by a statement outlining the reasons for refusal and an explanation of the reviewing process.

Hillingdon will adopt a uniform review system as follows:

  • an initial right to request the local authority to review the grounds of refusal
  • a subsequent right of appeal to the Local Government Ombudsman if the applicant believes that the local authority has not followed the due process correctly


Persistent loss of a badge may require the removal/withdrawal of entitlement to this permit. With effect from 1 January 2012, badges nationwide will be issued from a central office.


Replacement badges will be issued with a new serial number and dispatched centrally.


If you receive notification that your Blue Badge permit needs to be renewed you can apply online or contact us on 01895 556633.

Renewal reminders are issued automatically four to six weeks before expiry and you should apply as soon as you receive it to ensure applications can be processed before the old badge expires. If you haven't received a renewal reminder and your badge is due to expire in the next four weeks, please apply online or contact us on 01895 556633.


Hillingdon recognises that some people will intentionally or unintentionally misuse Blue Badges in a variety of ways. Misuse allegations may result in the withdrawal of the badge or prosecution following our investigations.
