Residents who have enjoyed free parking on the Wickes car park have been informed that the offer will no longer be available.
In a letter left on cars today, motorists have been advised that from 25th April 2022 a new scheme will be in place where the Wickes car park will be managed by G24, as they expect an upturn in sales due to the store being refitted. Motorists will be permitted to park for up to 90 minutes in store hours, according to the letter.
The letter states; “Dear Resident,From -Wickes Home Improvements.
We have allowed residents to park in the carpark over the years. As from next week (25/4/2022) we will unfortunately require the spaces to be vacant. We will have a carpark management agency in place called G24. This will be in place to allow customers to park (90 minutes maximum in store hours) as we see an uplift in sales due to the store being refitted and a reduction in spaces due to the delivery entrance extending.
“I hope you understand and support the request.
“Kind Regards, Management @ Wickes Stirchley.”
Ash Tree Road homeowner Vicky has started this petition to ask Wickes to reconsider the move (click here).
