We are working to make sure residents feel safe visiting their local high streets.

As part of the Reopening High Streets Safely project, which is being funded by the European Regional Development Fund, we have launched a #LoveLocal campaign.

It promotes Lichfield city and Burntwood town centres and other high streets across the district, while reinforcing safety messages, such as keeping hands clean, wearing a face covering and making space for others.


The #LoveLocal campaign features posters, banners, social media graphics, information leaflets, as well as queue waiting stickers and window vinyls for local businesses to use.

We have a library of resources for shops or businesses across the district to use, and the council’s information officer is continuing to hand out materials to businesses based in Lichfield and Burntwood.
