Shop keepers on the Aldridge Road near the Dyas Road junction have now come out in support of the Save our shops campaign. Many of these hard working traders have been let down by a disinterested Council,l but I hope to remind the Council and local residents that they are there and need support. I am pleased to say that the Great Barr Observer are getting behind this campaign also.
I have for example ensured their views have been listened to at a recent Transportation consultation meeting, looking into road safety in the area.
I am also asking Khalid Mahmoods MP's office (sadly he is ill at the moment) to look into the issue.
