In light of the excellent news that the blue badge scheme will be extended to those with mental health issues as well as physical disabilities so they can access shops, travel and services, Brentwood Council will take a proactive approach to this by instructing officers to review the blue badge parking available to establish whether it can be significantly increased and bringing a report on their findings to the Council's PRED Committee.

With a slight amendment that will see a report assessing demand and reviewing current provision, the motion was passed unanimously.
