Service UpdateProcessing times for Blue Badges will vary depending on the type of application.
Due to our current circumstances Further Assessment applications are currently taking 12-14 weeks to process.
All other applications are taking 4-6 weeks.
We recognise the impact these processing delays are having on both our existing Badge holders and new applicants and apologise for this. To lessen this impact for existing Badge holders Fife Council are extending the period a holder can continue to display their expired Badge and benefit from the parking concessions within Fife Council car parks and on street parking to 3 months, from the Badge expiry date.
Current Badge holders need to be aware of processing times and should they require to re-apply for a Badge they need to do so as soon as they can.
