Parking in Edgbaston (Area 2C)

Closed 26 May 2019

Opened 29 Apr 2019

Overview

Currently we are analysing all the feedback we have received and the discussions with the Cabinet Member will take place. Once the Full Business Case is presented to the Cabinet Member for consideration he will have the full picture of the requirements for all thirteen areas that we are looking at as a part of this project. We will send further communications out once this has happened.

 

Recent expansions at the University of Birmingham and facilities on the Queen Elizabeth Hospital site mean that more people are now travelling to this area. Together with new homes and an increase in car ownership, there are now significant pressures on parking in local streets.  This can have a negative impact on access for deliveries, buses and waste vehicles, and on the safety of all road users. Many properties do not have private off-street parking, and so there are increasing demands on the limited supply of public on-street parking spaces.  We are therefore proposing measures that prioritise parking provision for local residents in local streets, and improve access and safety of local roads.

Why We Are Consulting

We are working with the University and hospitals to encourage as many people as possible to make their trips by public transport, cycling and walking. Where this is not possible, we want to make sure that visiting cars are parked in appropriate places, with local residents having priority for the kerb space near their homes.

This is one location where we think we can improve on-street parking for residents and welcome feedback from people within this area.

No Waiting At Any Time is proposed along Metchley Lane. This will greatly improve traffic flow along this road which is also a major ambulance route.

Option 2 - day time waiting restriction

A day time waiting restriction is proposed along Metchley Lane. This will greatly improve traffic flow along this road which is also a major ambulance route.

In both options, proposals in Underwood Close are to improve the signage, making the existing permit parking zone more visible.
