RESIDENTS in Feckenham are being warned they face 'a fair amount' of disruption as part of plans to revamp the area.

Coupass Cottages off the High Street will be the latest location to be developed under Redditch Borough Council’s public realm improvements scheme, which first began in 2009.

Residents from the close were consulted on the proposals and work will now be starting the week commencing October 14.

Alongside general landscaping and resurfacing improvements eight extra parking spaces are being created together as a result of a carriageway extension onto unused land.

There will also be an improved footway.

Following minor works and landscaping, residents may see a fair amount of disruption as the teams develop the new parking area.

Councillor Brandon Clayton, whose portfolio covers Environmental Services, said: “There is more demand than ever for better parking around the borough, even in more rural areas like this, with more and more people having at least one, if not two, cars per household and visitors on top of this. 

“We’ve been making big changes to borough parking areas for ten years now and the improvement scheme is still going strong, unlocking Redditch for everyone.

"We apologise for the disruption caused whilst the work takes place and hope our residents see great benefits when the work is completed.”

It is hoped the work will take approximately four weeks to complete.
