Lease plan for Old Hill car park

Published 7th September 2017

Sandwell Council is set to lease a former pay and display council car park in Old Hill to The Regis conference and banqueting suite.

The council’s land and asset management committee, which meets on 14 September, is recommended to authorise a 25-year lease of the car park in Haden Road.

The council’s cabinet agreed in 2015 that the authority no longer needed the car park.

Councillor Paul Moore, the council’s cabinet member for regeneration and economic investment, said: “Although it’s not financially viable for the council to keep this car park open, this proposal would allow The Regis to provide parking for customers, which helps to support a local business.”

Under the lease, The Regis would be responsible for repairs and maintenance of the car park.
