MP asks for update on review of disabled parking criteria



Mr Costa asked the government for an update on their review of parking for those with hidden disabilities

A Leicestershire MP has prompted the government to provide an update on its plans to review new disabled parking criteria.

The announcement came after South Leicestershire MP Alberto Costa requested an update from the Department for Transport on Monday (February 3).

Nusrat Ghani, Parliamentary Under-Secretary for the Department for Transport, responded by saying: “The Department for Transport will review the impact of the expanded criteria on the Blue Badge scheme 12  months after implementation.

“In the first 3 months of the new criteria being in operation, 12,299 people in England who had applied using the non-visible condition criteria were awarded a badge.”
