Enhanced mobility doesn't qualify me for a blue badge?

I just went through a PIP review and after appeal got enhanced mobility and daily living which I am incredibly grateful for but this does not qualify me for a blue badge, parking space or bus pass (I got these with my so called indefinite DLA). Can anyone advise me what to do as I am devastated. I walk with a stick. Thank you.
(I got 10 points for planning and following a journey and 4 points for moving around)

    Hi and welcome to the community great to have you on board. Congratulations on your appeal win.

    Im not too sure about a blue badge as I thought you got them if on enhanced mobility but maybe its because it isnt awarded for the moving around section. Maybe worth contacting the local council blue badge scheme to get advice

    Sorry to hear about your “Blue Badge” 

    I also thought that if you were in the high rate of pip then you were able to a blue badge.

    for Blue Badge entitlement you must score the points in the moving around section. However Blue Badges are given by your local council and you may qualify under your local scheme
