Villagers asked for their views on the future of Lichfield’s rural areas

People living in rural areas around Lichfield are being invited to help shape the future of their neighbourhoods.

The first of a series of summer consultations kicks off at Alrewas Show on July 17.

Lichfield District Council will be holding further events in Armitage with Handsacre, Fazeley, Little Aston, Shenstone and Whittington.

To encourage lots of people to give their views, the council will be running a prize draw and everyone who lives or works in these areas and returns a questionnaire will be entered into a prize draw for the chance to win £25 shopping vouchers, while children can win a family ticket to the Lichfield Garrick’s production of Peter Pan.

Councillor Neil Roberts, Cabinet Member for Development Services, said:

“We hope lots of people come to these exhibitions and give us their views, as we need to know what local people want for their areas and surrounding villages. This will include finding out about local housing needs and jobs, access to services, and much more.”
