After my 2nd recent assessment, then appeal refusal and told not to re-apply for a blue badge until at least November. I went to the press (see link t.co/yPQB8OaZ0x) and wrote to the Head of Adult Services at Durham County Council. I received a telephone call this morning from Mr Pattinson (Head of Services for DCC) apologising and after reviewing my case have overturned their previous decision. So once the paper work is sorted i should be a holder of a Blue Badge, which is going to have a major influence on my independence. YIPPEE !!! (though I should not have to go through this rigmarole to get one in the first place !!)
It pays, not to just accept things and if you feel aggrieved you should question things.!!
