Leave space for shoppers

I have one of the answers to the Barnt Green traders’ ideas to boost the village in a scheme instigated by Bromsgrove’s Town Centre manager Cheryl Welsh.

I watch at least five people who work in Barnt Green shops, businesses or offices park regularly in Sandhills Road, as close to Hewell Road as they can.

It would be far better for their trade if they parked slightly further away and walked, and let shoppers park near Hewell Road (therefore having a shorter distance to carry their shopping) and not drive on to another village or town to shop.
