Consultation opened on 08 July 2013. Closing date 30 July 2013.


The Department has published a consultation document on its proposal for changes to the Blue Badge Scheme. The consultation document contains a number of planned and potential changes to the Blue Badge Scheme.


Consultation description

The Welfare Reform Programme will replace the Disability Living Allowance with Personal Independence Payment (PIP) for people aged 16 to 64 in Northern Ireland. PIP is a benefit to help disabled people live full, active and independent lives.

This consultation document outlines how the award of PIP could be linked to automatic eligibility for a Blue Badge and seeks views on the options available and their potential impact.
