      Hazel, it is quite difficult these days to reject a planning application on the grounds of lack of parking provision. The developers argue that they intend to market the premises to young singles or couples who can use the local public transport into Birmingham (although whether they do or not is questionable). Only when we get a development like that proposed for the Thimblemill pub, where lots of people will be coming to work/visit, can we hope to succeed with an argument on parking, and even that is marginal. All I would say is anyone taking these flats with a car must be crazy because there’s not a lot of parking in the vicinity.
