Making space for your car

We know that it’s important for you to be able to park near to your home.

We are increasingly being asked to provide parking. When most of the council houses were built, the majority of people did not have cars. However, now most households have at least one car.

Because of this, we are starting to review our old garage sites to increase the number of parking spaces available. This will include installing bollards to offer you allocated paid for spaces.

Why are we charging for these spaces?

It’s important that the spaces are regularly maintained to ensure that they remain useable, well into the future. Unfortunately, this costs money, and whilst we don’t want to pass this, cost onto you - we have to.

We will however promise that the price you pay for your space will be as little as possible and will just cover the costs of maintaining it, and not anything else.

We have always parked there for free…

We have previously not invested in our garage sites as we do not have enough funds to do so.

By charging a small amount, we can now put that money aside to re-invest in these areas, making them much more accessible for everyone who needs a space to park.

Please read our parking bay policy for more information.

We currently have spaces available to hire at our new development Oswald Court off College Road in Oswestry, Ash Grove and Pitchford Road, both in Albrighton.

Proud to support Family Safety Week

Accidents are the biggest killer of children and young people. Every week at least one child under-5 is killed because of an accident, with disadvantaged children most at risk.
