Plan to turn Lichfield tanning shop into funeral directors gets the go-ahead

Plans to convert a tanning shop in Lichfield into a funeral directors have been given the go-ahead.

The property at 116 Netherstowe has been empty for some time but will now be given a new role after Lichfield District Council’s planning chiefs approved the proposal this week.

The scheme was given the green light after documents submitted showed no plans for major alterations to the internal or external of the building.

It is not yet known when the new business will begin operating from the premises.

The full planning application can be viewed on the Lichfield District Council planning website.

    Not the most salubrious place in Lichfield.
    Unless you like fish/chips/beer and vehicles pumping fumes into the building as they reverse to save parking in the car park.
