If the proposal gets the go-ahead from Lichfield District Council, local residents would have a greater say on the future of their area.

Eleven other Parish Councils across Lichfield and Burntwood have already applied to become ‘designated neighbourhood areas’.

Lichfield District Council is now asking for local people to feedback their thoughts on the proposal in a consultation that is running until April 30.

Councillor Ian Pritchard said: “We need to know if local people support this proposal, as it’s an important step in creating a neighbourhood plan.

“This is why we are encouraging people that live in or around Hammerwich to feedback their thoughts in this consultation.”
