Friarsgate development plans

Friarsgate plans

Development Securities

We are working with Development Securities to deliver a new £100 million shopping and leisure complex in Lichfield City centre.

The vision is to revitalise the Birmingham Road area in a way that will link in with and complement the rest of the city centre. The scheme is a mixed use, featuring food, retail, a cinema and homes in a contemporary design, which is sensitive to the historic character of Lichfield, and its current retail offering. The development will also extend the city centre and provide routes through to the bus and rail stations, as well as a link in to the Three Spires shopping centre.

Despite tough trading conditions nationally, there remains strong interest in the Friarsgate development from the high street retail sector, however the current plans are being revised to ensure they are more in line with current market needs. The revised plans for the development will be subject to planning approval and it is hoped they will be presented to the planning committee in late 2015. Find out more.

In January 2015 the Friarsgate scheme was awarded £2.66m by the Regional Growth Fund to develop the bus station and transport elements of the scheme. Find out more.
