City centre development strategy 2015 - 2020

Organisations across Lichfield are signed up to the Lichfield City Centre Development Strategy.

Download the strategy & action plan

The strategy was created with the help of the Tourism Company, one of the UK’s leading tourism consultancies with town planning expertise. The team involved and interviewed over 20 key organisations and individuals, including local councillors, Lichfield Cathedral, the Lichfield Garrick, Lichfield Arts, Lichfield BID, Lichfield Festival, LEPs, landowners and more.

The strategy:

  • Is referenced in the district council’s local planning framework.
  • Ensures key funders (such as HLF) understand how projects and funding bids fit together.
  • Ensures the long-term success of existing and new developments, as well as the city as a whole.
  • Maximises opportunities to increase tourism and trade in the city centre area.
  • Supports combined marketing, branding and promotion within the city.
