blue-badgeInfrastructure Minister Chris Hazzard has announced a review of the renewal process for Blue Badge holders with life-long mobility issues. Commenting on the changes which will now be consulted on, Minister Hazzard said, “For many people with life-long mobility issues, the blue badge is a lifeline ‎enabling them to integrate in the community and go about many of the daily routines many of us take for granted. “Many of these badge holders have conditions which are unlikely to change and I am therefore very mindful of how the process can be adjusted.
