A series of summer consultations with rural communities kicks off at Alrewas Show on Saturday 17 July.
This summer, Lichfield District Council is holding a series of exhibitions across the district to ask rural communities how they think their neighbourhoods might be developed in the future.
The exhibitions will take place in Alrewas, Armitage with Handsacre, Fazeley, Little Aston, Shenstone and Whittington.
To encourage lots of people to give their views, the council will be running a prize draw and everyone who lives or works in these rural areas, who returns a questionnaire, will be entered into a prize draw for the chance to win £25 shopping vouchers.
And, to make sure children's views are heard, the council will also be giving away goodies to children, and running a children's competition to win a family ticket to the Lichfield Garrick's festive production of Peter Pan.
Councillor Neil Roberts, Cabinet Member for Development Services, said: "We hope lots of people come to these exhibitions and give us their views, as we need to know what local people want for their areas and surrounding villages. This will include finding out about local housing needs and jobs, access to services, and much more."
The first exhibition to launch the series will be at the Alrewas Show on Saturday 17 July. To find out more please visit www.lichfielddc.gov.uk/ruralplanning or telephone Clare Eggington on 01543 308192.
