Developers, St Modwen, were granted planning permission by Birmingham City Council to provide the extra parking areas until a multi-storey car park could be provided in the town centre.
Mike Murray, development director at St. Modwen, said: “A 1,200 space multi-storey and a further 500 space permanent surface car park have now been provided as part of phase 2 of the Town Centre, so the temporary consent granted by Birmingham City Council has expired […]
“We are working with businesses, staff and visitors to provide notice on the closure of these car parks as well as information on the alternative parking facilities available, to ensure a seamless transition.”
On plans for the sites, Mr Murray said: “There are no immediate plans for development on the sites, but both are earmarked for future employment/ mixed use schemes as part of the long-term Longbridge master plan.”
The Bristol Road South car park (opposite Longbridge Lane junction) and the car park adjacent to Austin Park will close at midnight on Thursday 24th March.
