Motorists will be assisted in locating car parks in the city and gain up-to-the-minute information about their capacity thanks to digital car parking signs which have been installed.

The signs, which help motorists make informed decisions about where to park, will display details of the spaces available in key car parks around the city centre.

Lichfield District Council has worked with Staffordshire County Council and Clearview to deliver three signs - on The Friary outside Franciscan View, on Birmingham Road near the junction with Friary Avenue and on Church Street near Greenhill Health Centre.

They are currently being tested, and when fully calibrated, will display the number of spaces available at car parks including Friary Multi Storey, Sandford Street, Bird Street, University, Lombard Street and Redcourt. Testing is set to be completed tomorrow, Friday 22 December.

Lichfield District Council’s Cabinet Member for High Streets and Visitor Economy, Councillor Janice Silvester-Hall, said:

“These new digital car parking signs are a great addition to the city’s parking infrastructure and will be of real benefit to motorists visiting the city centre.

“They are just one of a range of measures that we are introducing to make parking in Lichfield easier and more convenient.”
