Police have said they are working closely with Jaguar Land Rover to tackle problems with parking in residential roads.

The local neighbourhood team has been issuing fixed penalties to cars causing an obstruction in the streets around the Lode Lane factory.

The Solihull News has recently received a raft of letters from those living near to the plant, who have said shift workers are regularly causing problems by parking in side streets.

Although many are keen for the authorities to clamp down on the problem, some, like Craig Gill, who featured in the paper earlier this month, are annoyed they’ve been slapped with a ticket themselves.

Sergeant Carol Dodd, from the Elmdon and Lyndon neighbourhood team, said: “Inconsiderate and obstructive parking is one of the most commonly raised concerns by residents not just across Elmdon but the whole of Solihull.

“Reports can include vehicles double-parked, left too close to junctions, cars blocking pavements or stopping residents from gaining access to their driveways. This not only causes understandable frustration for residents but can also risk the safety of pedestrians and other motorists alike.

“Officers will continue to update residents about our work and discuss any other concerns they may have.”
