This week I have become aware of a letter residents in our constituency have received from Conservatives concerning proposals around Nursery Road.
Nursery Road is a continual problem for local residents due to congestion, cars mounting the pavements and road safety issues with schools nearby. We need a solution which will ensure the safety of residents in both Harborne and Edgbaston.
Following our last meeting with council officers, a broad range of proposals were put forward and were
all opposed by our Conservative councillors, who failed to offer their own alternatives.
I would like to take this opportunity to put the record straight on some of the disinformation that is being shared. For example, they fail to mention that I have fought to secure £30,000 of funding from the council to consider residents’ proposals to tackle the issue of cars mounting the pavement on Nursery Road. Let me be clear, no decision has yet been made or confirmed. Should it require more funding, more can be allocated.
I have spoken to the Council Cabinet Member for Transport, Cllr Waseem Zaffar, and have asked for timescales for this work and the involvement
Officers are currently considering all proposals and options to ensure we reach a solution that will benefit all residents, so no single street is left to bear the burden.
