Free parking BOOST FOR shoppers21/02/2017
Shoppers at a popular precinct in Birmingham will be able to enjoy up to 90 minutes of free parking from immediate effect, London & Cambridge Properties (LCP) has announced.
LCP, which in 2016 took over the management of the Scott Arms parade at Birmingham Road, Great Barr, has unveiled the offer, which forms part of its longer-term plans to help boost footfall for local retailers.
The 30,336 sq ft parade has 16 shops, including Greggs, Iceland and Well Pharmacy, has 68 car park spaces, including three disabled bays, all of which will now offer the limited free parking.
The good news comes as LCP reveals it is also set to welcome to Scott Arms two new nationally known retailers early this year, after it has completed work to reconfigure two vacant units.
Jo Salmon, retail portfolio manager at LCP, said: “Scott Arms is a busy and popular parade, both with local shoppers and those passing through. Since we began managing it, we’ve been looking at ways we can encourage more people to use these great facilities and believe that offering free parking for 90 minutes is an excellent starting point.
“We’re also undertaking work on two units that are earmarked for new tenants, which means that there will be only one vacant retail unit on the parade.”
