I have just been informed that I have to pay £20 for my next Blue badge, which has to be applied for and renewed every three years. I have written to my local counsellor about this as I live in a vast area where parking is free for all. I only ever use these parking facilities as I don't travel very far. I do not understand why Disabled people are being penalised because they are disabled! Are there others who are able to share my frustration? I live in Cumbernauld, N. lanarkshire, Scotland.
