I tried to deliver some items to any charity shop on Erdington High St when they reopened after having a clear out during lockdown and because of the measures, I was unable to park even slightly close to a shop when I had a boot full of products to deliver. I went into a nearby pay & display car park, but given my intension was just to stop no more than 5 minutes to make a delivery the pay rate was too expensive so I left. The free short parking down the middle of Sutton New Rd is always full with workers cars parked all day. This does not encourage people like myself who may just want to make a short visit. I was quite horrified how Erdington High St looked as I previously used it passing through on my journeys home. Quite honestly, you need to experience waiting for the No.11 bus (nr Dominos), the people that hang around that area display obvious signs of drinking heavily or drugs use - it is not a pleasant experience. Thankfully, I work from home and haven't been back to Erdington High St for any reason, for over a year even though it is my local centre. There is nothing, shops or business, there that will draw me back & more recently found out that the bank HSBC, is closing too.

Do you have any ideas for future improvements to Erdington local centre?

More free short stay parking - £0.50p for an hour, may encourage more visits. Regulate the parking down the middle of Sutton New Rd to short stay only, e.g. free for 2 hours, fee paying thereafter. Further intervention, mental health, drug counselling and visible community policing to deter behaviours and increase the feeling of safety. Buses need to run on time and the display units need to work giving people correct information so they can consider other options such as a different bus or even walking

The reduction in high street traffic was a good idea BUT there were cars parked against the barriers, presumably illegally, most days I walked along there. Parking was already reduced when the leisure centre was built so I imagine residents there have noticed more street parking. No enforcement of existing parking regulations, as is the case around most of erdington. The illegal parking on the double yellow lines by HSBC is particularly hazardous for both traffic and pedestrians.

Do you have any ideas for future improvements to Erdington local centre?

Enforce parking restrictions for safety and figure out some 10 minutes short term parking for selfish idiots who park on double yellows to go to the cashpoint. Some 1 hr parking nearby would help. Like a lot of people I try to walk and shop more locally to support local businesses but sometimes it is not feasible with bulky or heavy items and the coop car park is fine as long as I shop that end of the street. The car parks by the church are cramped and I have had issues there with broken ticket machines...

Drunks and druggies on the streets-Get rid of them. More parking, cycling lanes, wider pavements. Also, more cleaning in the area.

Get rid of HMO'S, drunks on street, druggies on street. Erdington has become a no go zone for the law abiding. More police(not PCSO's) patrolling on foot on the high street needed. More free parking needed otherwise footfall will continue to be low. Needs to be cleaner as looks terrible. Combination of job centre, Wetherspoon's and HMO's has ruined Erdington high street as attracts lower classes to mingle and keep decent people away and not spending money.

Do you have any comments about the temporary changes made last year?

No parking = no one stopping to shop.
