The fate of the contentious crossing proposed for Priory Road will be decided any day now as a site visit is planned to address all views.
Warwickshire County Council plans to install a zebra crossing outside St Nicholas School after calls from residents to increase safety for children and residents crossing the road.
But the move would see the loss of two parking bays which shop owners argue are vital to keep their businesses alive.
Cllr Peter Butlin, portfolio holder behind the final decision will visit the site over the next week to address all concerns before any plans are set.
The crossing would be sited 85 metres back from the Abbey End junction - but traders have asked that it be placed further down so as not to impact on the parking bays.
Council officers argue that if were any further down, it would not be used and as a compromise it is proposing two new parking bays further up the road for customers
Cllr Alan Cockburn (Con, St John’s) said following concerns from businesses and a plea from Kenilworth Town Council to help local traders, all views will be carefully addressed before any decision is made.
“There is a real need for this and demand to see it go in so we hope to find a solution,” he said.
“We simply cannot place this crossing any further up. There are restrictions on safety as there are so many driveways coming out onto the road, and it has to be a set distance from the junction.
“The site meeting will point out potential problems and find a way forward.”
