4 Sentinels to protect Berkswell village

A planning application has been submitted to Solihull Council for the construction of gateways at the four entry points to the village of Berkswell and conservation area. The gateway points are part of a five point plan, which has the support of Berkswell Parish Council and the Berkswell Society, to provide a visual and psychological road narrowing in an effort to define the area and help reduce road traffic speeds.

This is the culmination of 7 years of research and consultation with residents, conservation experts & local authority departments.

Full details of the application will be available at Solihull Planning Department but in the meantime here’s some stuff you can view:
