Birmingham City Council to launch new parking policy

New policies for parking in Birmingham have been outlined in a comprehensive document by the city council.

Addressing matters such as enforcement and park and ride facilities, the new policy is the first to combine council bodies such as the Visions Transport Strategy and the Local Transport Plan.

The cabinet has given its assent to the document, which the council is now planning to submit for statutory consultation.

According to councillor Len Gregory, the policy was designed to try to accommodate drivers’ individual requirements.

Earlier this month, the council announced the go-ahead for its new Birmingham Highways Private Finance Initiative with Amey.

The £2.7 billion, 25-year scheme will begin this summer, when Amey will begin its work upgrading streets, lights and bridges, although the council will maintain the city’s roads until it commences.

It is already working on the damage caused by the big freeze suffered affecting Britain during the winter.

Birmingham’s roads measure 2,500km in total.
