Wyre Forest District Council is to create 55 new car parking spaces in Bewdley town centre.
Work to extend Load Street car park on the site of the old library and medical centre will start in the next few weeks and will be completed by February 2017.
The additional parking area will incorporate a new attractive feature with seating and planting to enhance the visual appearance of the car park, which is set within a conservation area.
Demolition of the old library and medical centre will get under way shortly and disruption to the surrounding area will be kept to a minimum, with little, if any knock-on-effect to the existing car park.
This new scheme is the latest move to improve parking facilities in the town. The council has already extended Dog Lane and Gardners Meadow car parks to benefit residents, business users and tourists to the town.
Reconfiguration works will also continue in Dog Lane to improve car park access, lighting, access to the medical centre and create some specific parking zones.
Cabinet member for Operational Services Councillor Rebecca Vale said: “Bewdley is a beautiful, vibrant market town and as you would expect hugely popular with Wyre Forest residents and day trippers.
“One of the effects of this popularity is that there is pressure on parking. In order to support Bewdley Town Centre, Wyre Forest District Council is delighted to be creating an extra 55 parking spaces right in the middle of town. This is part of our ongoing commitment to improve parking facilities in Bewdley.”
