Report misuse of a Blue Badge

Blue Badge misuse deprives our services of the vital resources they need. We rely on your vigilance to help us detect and deter fraudulent practices throughout Cambridgeshire.

If you suspect a Blue Badge is being misused you should obtain as many details as possible from the Blue Badge on display such as name, badge number and the expiry date. Then complete the online form below. Your details will be held in strict confidence.

We will then investigate the matter and take appropriate action if the Blue Badge can be shown to have been or is being misused. In cases where an applicant makes a fraudulent application (providing false information), it may be possible to prosecute the individual under section 2 of the Fraud Act 2006. This carries a penalty of a fine of up to £5,000 and/or up to 12 months' imprisonment on summary conviction.

This form cannot be used to report fraud involving DWP Benefits. To do this, contact the DWP’s national Benefit Fraud Hotline on 0800 854 440 or report it online.

We are not authorised to enforce the Blue Badge scheme on private property. For example, incidences of suspected misuse in supermarkets should be reported to the car park operator.
