Julian backs #ReverseTheBan Campaign

April 1, 2023

Julian was proud to put his backing behind the cross-party #ReverseTheBan campaign ahead of next month’s local elections.

Julian has long campaigned for blue badge restrictions to be lifted in York believing the Council have been heavy handed when following security advice from the police.

Last year, Julian asked the Minister for Equalities to work with the Minister for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities to enshrine blue badge access into law for town planning. He also met with the Thomas Pocklington Trust to learn how blue badge restrictions have affected the blind and visually impaired.

Commenting on the #ReverseTheBan campaign, Julian said:

“It is not right that residents are excluded from their city centres and current restrictions must be lifted as soon as possible.

While there may be security concerns, we should be looking to other cities where this has been addressed while allowing blue badge holders access.

Instead, the Council are insisting on pressing ahead with permanent barriers worth £3.5 million that effectively sends a message to blue badge holders that they’re not welcome.”
