I'm not aware of any waiting period before re-applying for a blue badge.

I assume you are not in receipt of DLA HRM, so if you believe you meet the requirements to be awarded a blue badge, and have a requirement for one, then you should apply.

Those in receipt of DLA higher rate mobility component automatically qualify for a Blue Badge, but other severely disabled people may also qualify. See The Blue Badge Scheme

This is an eligibilty checker by the government, and this summarises eligibility.

I note that it isn't unequivocal in relation to walking difficulties, but unfortunately, blue badges aren't something we advise on here.

Blue Badge scheme is going to be £10 now instead of £2. But do not mind this. Also have to reapply 6 weeks before old one runs out of date. Full rate mobility also entitles you to badge I think. Also suppose to be less likely to be copied. :dry:
