Birmingham City council have decided not to implement the proposed ‘Controlled Parking Zone’ around St Andrews on Event and Match Days.
In a statement released today Birmingham City Council have said …
In light of the lack of support for the Controlled Parking Zone in the vicinity of St. Andrew’s Stadium it is proposed that no further action will be taken to implement the scheme. A letter is being sent to every property within the consultation area informing them of the decision.
Approximately 2850 residents and commercial businesses were consulted on the proposal to implement the Controlled Parking Zone. A further 3,000 letters were also distributed around the remaining area within the original stage 1 consultation area explaining that the boundary of the proposed Controlled Parking Zone had been revised in light of the responses received to the previous consultation.
In response to this second consultation some 435 questionnaires were returned giving a return rate of approximately 15%. Of these returned some 389 were completed correctly and within the consultation area. 65 respondents (17%) supported the idea of a controlled parking zone. whilst 315 (81%) did not support the controlled parking zone.
