PARKING NEAR THE GREAT BARR ACAEDEMY A STEP IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION AT LAST
I have been pleased to see that a planning application has been presented to the Councils Planning department from the Great Barr Academy.
This application is looking for the approval of a drop of zone within the front of the schools grounds.
As someone who has been involved in a advisory capacity to this project clearly I welcome this application and the schools ongoing efforts to deal with a parking and road safety issue.
The application which if agreed would mean cars and buses entering the Aldridge Road grounds of the school for the means of dropping off and picking up school children.
Although there are no magic solutions to problems regarding congestion and parking around schools in Oscott this is a step in the right direction and should help ease problems not just near the Great Barr academy but even further afield.
