Lichfield District Council welcomes the news that work is starting on site to create a new retail park in Lichfield
Developers Cranford and Bride Hall will be setting to work on a new shopping development off Eastern Avenue in Lichfield this November.
The 58,000 square foot retail scheme is on the former sites of Lichfield District Council's waste and recycling depot and the old Martin and Field Factory.
When complete, Lichfield Retail Park will be home to a variety of stores, including: Wickes, Halfords, Carpetright, Pets at Home and SleepMaster.
Robert Oakley, Director of Cranford Developments, said: "It is always rewarding when building work starts on site, particularly when we are regenerating redundant brownfield sites such as this one. Lichfield Retail Park will offer local people a fantastic range of new shops, and I am sure it will be very popular with locals and visitors to Lichfield."
Nigel Desmond, Managing Director of Bride Hall, commented: "Bride Hall are very pleased to be investing in Lichfield and are confident that the shopping park will prove to be great success."
Councillor David S. Smith, Leader of Lichfield District Council, added: "We're delighted that, despite the current financial climate, Lichfield continues to attract big named stores. This development is great news for the district, creating more jobs and opportunities for local shoppers to stock up on a large range of items without having to travel out of the district."
Work is expected to be completed on Lichfield Retail Park towards the end of 2010.
