**PLEASE NOTE – meeting start time has been revised to 7pm**
Residents have been concerned about parking issues on Longbridge Lane for many years – from parking congestion around Sunbury Road shops, college users parking in residential streets, station traffic and so on.
With the new Longbridge development, many were hoping things would improve but locals have been particularly bemused by the sudden narrowing of Longbridge Lane opposite the station. The road narrows suddenly from two lanes to one and a large kerb protects a small parking bay. The fact that this happens just after the brow of the bridge over the rail track and does not have clear signage has concerned many.
Many are also worried that the system as it is will not cope with increased traffic as the new town centre continues to be developed.
After residents raised concerns at the last Northfield ward committee meeting, Birmingham City Council have arranged a public meeting to address any issues, parking problems and future parking plans.
Officers from the council’s Highways team are expected to be in attendance along with other local stakeholders, including Northfield and Longbridge ward councillors.
