Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council said the proposals – out to consultation – are partly in response to a Sainsbury’s plan for Forest Court, to open by Christmas.

It said: “Concerns have been raised from local residents and ward councillors about inappropriate all day  parking associated with Dorridge Railway Station restricting access to properties in the area of Dorridge village centre and surrounding roads.

“In addition, development works have been undertaken on the village centre and a holistic parking review  has been undertaken with the aim of adapting parking provision to reflect the changes.”

The plans include a 20mph speed limit proposal for Avenue Road, Dorridge Road, Grange Road, Forest  Road, Poplar Road, Station Approach and Station Road.
