Parking spaces to replace garages in latest round of Redditch initiatives

Correspondent 17th Oct, 2018

CLIFTON Close in Matchborough is to be the next location to be developed under the Borough Council’s improvements scheme.

As well as general landscaping and resurfacing improvements, 12 extra parking spaces will created as a result of 12 garages being knocked down.

The work will begin with the demolition of the garages and other work to reduce the amount of litter and improve the safety of the area before teams move in to develop the new parking area.

Councillor Brandon Clayton, whose portfolio covers Environmental Services, said: “We apologise for the disruption caused to residents whilst the work takes place but it is essential in order to alleviate ongoing parking issues and improve the safety and security of the area.

“There is a demand for more parking and the many of the garages are in poor condition and a target for anti-social behaviour.”

The work, which will start on Monday, October 22, will take approximately three weeks to complete.
