A car park in Redditch is set to be temporarily closed later this month for essential maintenance works. 

The car park at Pitcheroak Golf Course, which services the golf club run by Rubicon Leisure, will be closed in stages and then completely for several days to allow for resurfacing, new kerbs and relining. 

The project will start with kerbing works from Monday, March 18, during which time a small section of the car park will be closed temporarily. 

The full closure of the car park will then follow for approximately four days from Monday, March 25 to facilitate the much-needed resurfacing and relining. 

Leader of Redditch Borough Council, Matt Dormer, said: "We apologise for any inconvenience caused and we hope to keep disruption to a minimum. 

"There is never a good time to close a car park like this one, especially at such a busy golf course, but closing it completely for a few days is the best option to avoid any health and safety issues as well as enable our contractors to complete the work as quickly as possible. 

"We trust visitors to this excellent leisure facility will understand the necessity and appreciate the enhancements being made." 

The old surfacing will be planed off before the new surfacing is put down so residents are being asked to remove their cars from the car park the night before to avoid any potential access issues or risk damage to their vehicles. 

The Golf Club will remain open for use during this time but will only be accessible by foot. 

The work is being completed by the council's contractor, Kelbec Civils, and the improvements are expected to address the disrepair of the car park and enhance its safety for golf club members and visitors. 

Operations manager at Pitcheroak Golf Course, Marcus Killingsworth, said: "We're very grateful to Redditch Borough Council for organising this resurfacing work.

"The car park is in a poor state and whilst we know it will be a short-term inconvenience for some of our regular users, in the long run, it will mean a superior experience for guests going forward, especially for the upcoming summer season."
