Other Information

Applicants under 65 years:

If you are under the age of 65 years, you may be entitled to claim a mobility related benefit from the Department of Work and Pensions.  

We recommend that Blue Badge applicants who are under the age of 65 years should firstly apply for Personal Independence Payment (PIP)

If awarded, this will help you financially, and also serve as the relevant medical evidence required when applying for a Blue Badge.

Blue Badge Holder’s Responsibilities:

In accordance with the responsibilities of the badge holder, whether your re-application is successful or unsuccessful you have a duty to ensure the return of an expired badge to the Authority. 

Lost, stolen, or damaged Blue Badges:

Badges can be replaced for a charge of £10 (you may need to prove you are still eligible to receive one) - see ‘How to apply/re-apply for a Blue Badge?’

Once reported lost/stolen or damaged, we will cancel the badge, so if it is found at a later date it will not be valid and should be returned to us immediately

Found badges:

Please return any found Blue Badges to us, stating where and when found.

Where to return Blue Badges:

If you need to return a Blue Badge please send to :

Customer Services, One Stop Shop, Civic Centre, Neath, SA11 3QZ
