The Birmingham Business Improvement District organisation, Retail Birmingham, has written to Lichfield District Council praising the new Friary Car Park that has recently been officially opened in the City.
Mike Dunn of Retail Birmingham said : “I am delighted the Friary Car Park is now open. With more than 400 long stay parking spaces, this will provide an excellent opportunity for those planning a festive shopping trip to park their cars in a safe and affordable place before catching a bus or taking the train to Birmingham’s Bullring shopping centre.”
Shopper Pam Blackwell from Burntwood agreed : “It couldn’t be more convenient for my Christmas shopping, just park up at the Friary and then take the train into Brum, at last the Council has done something positive to address the problem of poor shopping facilities in Lichfield.”
Mike Dunn also congratulated the car park’s architects: “The car park is visually stunning, with minimalist design input and an abundance of unclad steelwork it really does prepare our visitors for their train journey through Birmingham’s industrial wastelands.”
Councillor David Leytham, who officially opened the facility on 25th November 2013 was not asked to comment.
