More than 250 Knowle drivers fined

MORE than 270 drivers were slapped with parking tickets in Knowle car parks last year – but none were issued in Dorridge.

Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council dished out 279 tickets in 2010/11 in its car parks.

Yet no penalty charge notices were issued at Forest Court car park, where only three businesses remain after a spate of closures.

The council could not break down tickets by car parks, by Knowle Church and St John’s Close.

And while 224 tickets were given out at Malvern Park car park, off Malvern Park Avanue, some 14 were given for the lower Brueton Park car park.

The most tickets, 545 and 536, were given at Council House and Monkspath Hall Road.

The others were:

Church Hill car park 418
Dominion Court car park 268
Tudor Grange Leisure Centre car park 57
Tudor Grange Park car park 6

  2. There is an excellent card shop, chemist and restaurant so please get you facts correct. In addition people are using the car park and using the train therefore well overstaying the allowed time.

  4. THINK OUT OF THE BOX, A SUPERMARKET INTEREST HAS BEEN INVOLVED IN FOREST COURT FOR YEARS, FIRSTLY WAITROSE WHO PULLED OUT AND SAINSBURYS THEN HAD AN INTEREST. THESE THINGS DONT HAPPEN OVERNIGHT. IN THE MEANTIME SOLIHULL COUNCIL WONT SPEND ANY MONEY REPAIRING THE CAR PARK. WHEN THERE,S A PROPOSED TAKEOVER WERE THEY EVER GOING TO BE INTERESTED IN KEEPING TRADERS, NO THEY,VE DONE EVERYTHING THEY CAN TO DETER THEM, ITS ALL PART OF THE GAME.

  6. There's something fishier than the Sainsbury's fish counter going on here but I can't figure it out.

    Incidentally, there were 48 cars in the car park at around 5pm last Friday. I know as I counted them myself. They can't all be using the surgery and pharmacy.
