Are the car park cameras at Morrisons, a done deal?
Following the meeting where the planning application was finally given the go ahead for new parking enforcement ANPR cameras at the car park by Morrisons in Lawley, the planning application for the signs was passed this evening too.
Four Councillors sitting on the planning committee voted in favour despite opposition campaigns from local Councillors and residents.
Telford MP, Lucy Allan has written to Morrisons, explaining ‘The concern is that people will avoid the area once the cameras are installed and parking restricted, leading local businesses to suffer. The local school also use Lawley Square to ease congestion by the school to improve safety of the children.’
While planning has been granted for both the cameras and the signage, it is not known when the system will be switched on, or if Morrisons will reconsider the situation in light of protests.
