Whilst not inside the LARA area the on-going proposals for the development of the centre of Lichfield are of interest to all residents.


Part of the proposed new Friarsgate development in the centre of Lichfield.

In November 2015, Development Securities (Lichfield) Ltd submitted a planning application (15/01365/FULM) for the demolition and re-development of the area comprising the multi-storey car park, the car showroom, the police station and some houses and retail kiosks.

The new development will be Friarsgate and will include a cinema, shops and restaurants, as well as a relocated bus station and a replacement multi-storey car park.

More details of the proposals are on the Friarsgate web site.

LARA have made several observations and representations to the council over the proposals.
