Motorway Services at Catherine-de-Barnes:

We understand that no decision will be made until March 2018 at the earliest . However, many of you will have signed Caroline Spelman’s petition which asks the Secretary of State to reject the application on traffic safety grounds.

M42 Junction 6 Relief Road:

You may be aware that this new dual carriageway will cross land from the M42 beneath Solihull Road to the Clock junction.  Highways England have held a number of village consultations on detail yet to be determined.  The Parish Council has expressed particular concern about the design of both the north and south junctions.  We will keep you up to date as and when more information becomes available.

Security of Recreation Ground Car Park

Many will have noticed that height restricting security barriers have now been erected at the entrance to the car park. Whilst being highly visible and not very pleasing to look at the barriers are considered to be a necessity in helping prevent unauthorised access to the car park and beyond, a problem which occurred many times in parts of the Borough during last year.

In the near future it is hoped to carry out work to the drainage system to prevent flooding of the car park during heavy and prolonged rainfall. Following this work it is intended to remark the parking space white lines, introduce a disabled parking bay at the far end near to the Scout and Guide hut and slightly reduce the number of bays near to the main entrance.
