Decision on Fiery Hill is deferred

Posted on November 30 2015 at 10:23:37

The decision on whether a Barnt Green road junction must be moved has been deferred for further traffic figures.

Bromsgrove planners were due to rule last month on Cala Homes’ application to leave the Fiery Hill/Kendal End Road junction where it is.

Barnt Green Parish councillors heard the developer had now been asked for more data on traffic speeds before a final decision could be taken.

In the plans for 88 homes behind the Barnt Green Inn, approved by Bromsgrove, the junction was to be moved away from the railway bridge which obscures the vision of motorists pulling out from Fiery Hill.

Cala now says the reduced vision of the current junction makes it safer than a junction providing greater vision, because drivers take more care.
