Shaping the future of Lichfield city centre

Lichfield District Council is developing a new master plan for Lichfield city centre.

The plan will be created with the views of residents from across the district, local businesses, partners and more, and will make sure that Lichfield city meets the needs of its growing and changing population in years to come.

David Lock Associates, who have been appointed to help shape the new city master plan, have now prepared an analysis, issues & options report on the city centre. The report provides a review of the evidence base assembled to date, and outlines issues and options based on that evidence and is also informed by the responses received to the consultation held in spring 2019 and more recent stakeholder surgery sessions.

The next step will be for a draft masterplan to be prepared for a wide ranging public consultation exercise early in 2020 that will then help develop a finalised masterplan. The new plan, which will include proposals for the future of the Birmingham Road site and its interaction with the overall city centre, is essential if we are to develop Lichfield city positively for future generations. In the short term, temporary improvements to the Birmingham Road Site will be carried out during the winter months of 2019/2020.
