    They seem to be getting a lot tougher about who gets a blue badge these days and trying to limit it to those with severe physical limitations. It has been discussed in the past (link below) where some interesting things and useful links were posted.

    More recently there have been some posts on the problems of getting a permit for those responsible for the care of Alzheimer's patients
    http://forum.alzheimers.org.uk/showthread.php?82220-Questiin

    It seems a crazy philosophy to me when the main criteria is;can you walk 50yds ?
    and gain a permit , when the same person could spend ages walking around a supermarket
    Yet refuse a permit to someone who could be frantic looking after someone with dementia and the problems they face

    Has the person in question been formally diagnosed? If so, I would speak to their GP, x

    Assuming England.

    A Blue Badge is automatically issued if page 5 can be met else it's page 6

    My LA insists on an assessment being performed if they think there is a good case for a discretionary badge, the outcome is decided on performance at this assessment, scant attention is paid to any other reports. They pay for the assessment.
