New signage is to be introduced at the car park that is located alongside the new Pelsall Village Centre following confusion over its status.
Coun Garry Perry said some people believe the car park is private, which means that drivers are not using the free facility.
“Whilst attending my recent advice surgery at the new centre I was surprised to see that there was just me and one other car parked on the car park,” he said. “I was stopped by a couple of residents on the way into the centre who said people are not using it because they are not sure whether it is free, and whether it is private.”
A Walsall Council engineer has visited the site on a number of occasions and believes that a new sign telling motorists that it is open to all and is free will encourage more people to use it.
The authority is also to introduce a mix of Prohibition of Waiting, Limited Waiting and a Disabled Bay outside the centre, but this will be discussed in May or June.
