I was contacted by residents in Perks Road who were asking if the Wolverhampton Homes flats could have part of their lawn taken out and have the provision of car parking spaces provided for them. Like many other areas of Ashmore Park on street car parking is becoming a featured difficulty.
Wolverhampton Homes who manages these properties for their tenants have sent me the most encouraging of responses. They tell me and I quote –
“I am happy to report that we have had an opportunity to review the area around Perks Road and can confirm we will be creating additional parking to the two CS3 blocks.
We estimate 4 spaces will be created to each block, subject to successful planning applications and consultation with the tenants and residents. This work will be scheduled in after March 2018.”
In short those 8 extra spaces will greatly help every one living in and around that area, and the congestion in that part of Ashmore Park.
Your Councillors are doing all we can in difficult budget situations to argue and advocate improvements where and when we can….
