Keep the racers off the Fort Parkway – Ann Holtom

Fort Parkway

Liberal Democrat campaigner Ann Holtom is calling on the West Midlands police to lead the fight to keep the A47, Fort Parkway free from speeding vehicles after residents' complaints about noise and safety have increased. In 2011, a court injunction was obtained after residents, the police and Birmingham Council (then jointly run by the Liberal Democrats) went to court to prevent the Fort Parkway being used as a night time and weekend race track. The injunction, made 'car cruising' illegal there and it runs until 22 September 2013. Ann Holtom is calling on the police to ensure that the injunction is enforced and, if necessary, to go back to court to get it extended.
