The results are in from Bromsgrove District Council's car parking survey

THE CAR PARK study carried out by Bromsgrove District Council has seen drivers call for more extra spaces and the need to improve car park signs.

The survey by consultants 2020 over a three-month period included an online poll and workshops to map out a future vision for parking in the town so the authority could decide where to best put its resources.

The document also looked at electrical charging points being installed and where potential new car parking spaces could be placed.

It found charges were comparable with other areas and evaluated the number of spaces Bromsrove had compared to other towns in the Midlands.

Now the council, working with partners including the County Council and NWEDR, will also be commissioning a detailed business plan looking at investment, parking space requirements and signage.

Portfolio-holder for economic development Coun Karen May said the work was important so future improvements would meet residents’ and businesses’ needs.

“We want to get it right so our district can continue to flourish and respond to the increasing number of people who are visiting us for our excellent, eclectic mix of shops, eateries and bars.”
