At today's Planning committee I stood alone in arguing for another look at a possible parking nightmare. This is what may now result from the granting of a Planning application, for a Travel Lodge with food takeaway, off the Aldridge Road on the Tame way Park , Perry Barr.
This planning application only has enough parking space for 46 cars and there are 6o rooms for example.
There are parking problems in the vicinity of this planning application already and with the expected building the new Sutton College Centre just across the Aldridge Road in a year or two, I can see a lot of problems.
I am not against the plans for a Travel Lodge and acknowledge a number of jobs will be created by the new hotel. However the parking issues now and in the future, in my view have simply not been addressed.
