I was also turned down. I did get the blue badge however but only thanks to my GP.
I recently took part in the Blue badge review consultation which the dept for transport is currently conducting. I made a VERY strong argument for UC sufferers to be allowed a badge.
The consultation is still open. Please complete it and email it back to the DFT. Each case they hear in our favour will have an impact!
