I have sent a fine but as a blue badge holder whose badge was clearly displayed will I have to pay?

    You need to provide more details about the alleged parking event.

    Which parking company? Where was the car park?

    Is a private parking company invoice or a ticket from the council?

    It is not a fine.

    If the terms of the car park do not exempt blue badge holders, then yes, like everyone else, you do have to pay.

    Doesn't the booklet that comes with your blue badge explain that?

    Have you complained to the landowner?
    That's always the first thing to do.

    Where exactly did this alleged transgression take place?

    Have you read the NEWBIES FAQ Announcement, first post, which tells you how to deal with a private parking charge. It's not clear from your short description what your blue badge 'transgression' was, but be aware that the rules around the blue badge on highways and council car parks do not apply similarly in private car parks. 

    To help you find the NEWBIES FAQ Announcement.

    Please note, we are not a legal advice forum. I personally don't get involved in critiquing court case Defences/Witness Statements, so unable to help on that front. Please don't ask. .
