    Hello

    I have a blue badge for my m.e / chronic fatigue syndrome and I will be moving out of the area to another council area . Does anyone know if I need to get a new badge ? Or can I keep this one for the amount of time thats left on it with this council who issued it.

    Hi @coleyd
    You will need to inform your new council and the previous council of your change of address. If you don't there could be problems if they issue a charge for any parking misdemeanour.
    As long as you do not need a new badge to be issued there should not be a charge just to inform of change of address. You can do it online.
