Help design new vision for Lichfield’s Birmingham Road Site at District Council House drop-in

The Birmingham Road Site.
Come and give your views on the future of the Birmingham Road site.

Lichfield District Council and urban design specialists Create Streets are inviting the district's residents to help shape the future of the Birmingham Road Site by giving their views at District Council House.

The Create Streets team specialises in working with local communities, with a focus on designing places that are beautiful and sustainable while challenging poor quality development. 

Last year it teamed up with Lichfield District Council to engage with residents and stakeholders on new plans for the Birmingham Road Site.

Following an online survey and some engagement events in Lichfield city centre, residents are now invited to visit District Council House in Lichfield’s Frog Lane where they can give their views in a dedicated room in the foyer.

Feedback will help shape the design of the site in the next phase of development.

David Milner, deputy director at Create Streets, said:

“We are delighted to be involved in helping with the design of new houses, apartments, business premises and new streets on the Birmingham Road Site.

“Considering how beautiful the centre of Lichfield is, there is a generational opportunity to match its rich character, make the city more beautiful and create a first impression of Lichfield, as you step off the train, that we are all proud of.

“We believe that you, the residents who live in Lichfield and know it best, should play a fundamental part in this process and hope you will give your views at District Council House.”

District Council House is open Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm. The room where views can be registered is on the right following access through the first set of sliding doors at the entrance to the building.
