Carters Green Public Realm Improvements Summer 2019
The council is proposing improvements to the public realm in Carters Green, West Bromwich, to include highways improvements, pedestrian safety improvements and increased parking provision.
An opportunity exists to transform the Carters Green centre that will significantly enhance the environment and public spaces.
This will improve the areas image, making the area more user friendly and thus have a positive impact on local businesses and retailers.
By introducing road alignment changes, better use can be made of the public space, creating an events area and increased on street parking.
Improving the location of crossing points and reducing crossing distances will have safety benefits and will tackle highway congestion issues coming into the centre.
New paving, trees and street furniture will improve the attractiveness of the centre, increasing dwell times of pedestrians and Carters Green's popularity as a destination.
Consultation will be undertaken on this proposed development from Monday 5 November to Friday 30 November 2018 and comments will be welcomed.
Copies of the proposed development plan will be available for public inspection during normal office hours at Planning Reception, Sandwell Council House, Freeth Street, Oldbury, B69 3DE
An information display and copies of information leaflets will also be available during normal office hours at YMCA, 38 Carters Green, West Bromwich, B70 9LG
