Petition

I propose closing Warstone Lane to heavy goods vehicles and buses between the hours of 10pm and 6am and on weekends.

Background information

Whilst the Jewellery Quarter has been a key part of Birmingham's creative past, the present and future is much more residential. There are increasing numbers of apartments along Warstone Lane. Unfortunately, the road is in continual use by large and heavy vehicles throughout the night.

I am one such resident. I should not have to sleep with ear plugs in every night in order to be able to sleep.

The heavy goods vehicles and buses also cause some of the buildings to vibrate - this, in turn, sets off some of the alarm systems in those buildings. Some of been known to go on for hours before they are switched off.
