Town Council Issues Update on Traffic and Parking Public Meeting

Fazeley crest colour smallFazeley Town Council has published an update on the public meeting held at the Town Hall on Wednesday, 30th September 2015 to discuss Traffic and Parking in the Town.

The meeting back in September had questions asked about the possible part-time use of St Paul’s Church car park and Tolson’s Mill car park for general public use and the refurbishment of Council owned land at the rear of Victory Terrace.

Following a meeting with St Paul’s Church officials, it was concluded that the Church Car Park would not be suitable for general Public use.

The Managing Agent for the Tolson’s Mill properties was approached and he advised that each business tenant has a limited parking allocation and all businesses would need to reach agreement for public parking during set times.  The view is that this would never be agreed to with parking allocation being a premium requirement for each business.

The Town Council contacted groundwork’s contractor last December for a quote to refurbish the access roadway and degraded tarmac car park area adjacent to the recreation field behind Victory Terrace.  The refurbishment of the roadway only will cost £22,250 + VAT, the car park only will cost £41,850 + VAT and both areas refurbished together will cost £58,400 +VAT.

The question was also asked as to whether the taxi rank by the Peninsular Restaurant could be converted back into a general parking space as there are no resident taxis in Fazeley.  This currently remains unanswered but will be pursued and reported on in a later bulletin.
