  • London Borough of Harrow (19 007 902)

    Statement Upheld Transport 02-Mar-2020

    Summary: Mr J complains the Council's contractor refused his application for a Blue Badge. We have found some fault with the information the Council and its provider gave Mr J. But our view is this is unlikely to have made a difference to the decision itself. So the injustice to Mr J is limited.
