Andy Radford has today posted an urgent plea on the King Edwards Wharf Facebook group for people to act, he says…
“Please respond to the council consultation on on-street parking at www.birmingham.gov.uk/centralladywoodparking
I’ve just spoken to the project manager and he says there are not currently enough responses to convince the powers that be that there is a problem.”
The deadline for feeding back your views is this Friday, 5 April.
Click here to complete the online survey – it is very short and should only take a minute or two.
I posted the text below to this website on 8 March:
The Council’s Transport Policy function wishes to gauge local residents opinions on introducing a Residents’ Permit parking scheme in Central Ladywood and the St Marks area.
This is of particular significance to KEW Phase 2 Residents because Browning Street and other adjoining streets would be affected.
Phase 1 Residents should not be directly affected as the current Controlled Parking Zone in Sheepcote Street would not be affected.
The proposed scheme seeks “to prioritise local parking over commuters etc. but still with provision for visitors etc.”.
Phase 2 Residents’ opinions on the proposals are sought and leaflets about the proposals will be delivered to your letter boxes starting from Monday 11 March.
If you do not receive the leaflet you can give your views using the following contact details:David Harris
