Baker Street Car Park Gets A Makeover

Posted on 21st November 2012 by

For sometime Baker Street Car Park has been a blot on the landscape suffering from high levels of litter, fly – tipping and evidence of drug taking. Birmingham City Council has taken action and has given the Car Park a makeover with an estimated 3 – 4 tons of waste being collected.  

The tidy up took a mamouth 5 days  and was completed by Community Partnership Enterprise, a social enterprise that works closely with West Midlands Probabtion Trust.  

Measures are being put in place to make sure that the Car Park is kept clean and tidy. Also, Birmingham City Council will be working closely with the Police to tackle any criminal or anti – social behaviour taking place in the car park.

Here are before and after photos:

Last Saturday Birmingham City Councils Fleet & Waste Management Team funded by the Lozells & East Handsworth Ward Commitee carried out a clean up of Baker Street car park. This site has suffered from a lot of littering and dumping of rubbish for years. Despite this it is well used which I think is a sign of how useful it is to the local centre.

Litter in Baker Street Car Park July 2010

It is such a shame that so many people have dropped litter and dumped rubbish leaving an area that really lets down the local centre. Plans are underway to revert it to a pay & display car park with CCTV cameras that will make it easier to take enforcement action against anyone illegally dumping. This month enforcement work by wardens will start where anyone dropping litter could be fined £75.

Local traders are supportive of this change and welcome improvements to the local centre. Hopefully the car park will stay clean and people can enjoy the local area shopping in a clean & safe environment.

Please report any dumping using the Birmingham City Council website
