Hi!

I applied for a Blue Badge on the 7th September. The online checker said they'd received my forms and evidence on the 20th September.

I've heard nothing. My council says the process takes up to 8 weeks. That 8 weeks was last Friday if counted from when they got my forms (and 10 from me applying).

I know I don't automatically qualify so I've been expecting an assessment. When I call, they just tell me it's with the 'assessment team'.

Is there anything I can do?
