The planning application submitted at the end of last year by CALA Homes to NOT re-align Fiery Hill Road as originally planned in 2013 has been approved by the planning committee at Bromsgrove District Council.
The parish council supports this decision. Having looked at the evidence supplied by CALA it would appear that the existing road layout, by virtue of making drivers in Fiery Hill Road stop at the junction with Kendal End Road, is actually quite safe. In contrast it was suggested that moving the junction further away from the railway bridge would encourage riskier driving.
CALA Homes have also agreed for the rail commuters’ car park, now re-located onto the west side of Fiery Hill Road, to be available free of charge to users.
