Blue badge enforcement to restart

North East Lincolnshire Council have warned of the possible penalties if residents delay renewing their blue badges, as enforcement restarts.

Penalty charge notices (PCNs) are not currently being issued to blue badges with an expiry date of 1 January 2020 onwards.

However, enforcement on expired blue badges is set to restart in Grimsby and the surrounding areas from 1 October 2020.

From this date, you will no longer be permitted to use your expired badge.

Councillor Stewart Swinburn, portfolio holder for environment and transport, said:

“Teams are working hard to make sure all expired badge holders are aware of the need to re-apply and avoid receiving a PCN when the guidance changes.

“We’re aware there are many expired badges across the area and we urge these badge holders to start the application process as soon as possible.

“This will allow sufficient time to process your application and make a decision, with the aim of avoiding unnecessary fines and mitigating an influx of applications when enforcement restarts.”

Residents with expired badges can apply online via the North East Lincolnshire Council website, or ring (01472) 313131, option 7 to book a telephone appointment.
