The manager of the Lichfield Business Improvement District is to leave her job.
Morag Pringle took up the position last November.
But she has now decided to return to a role with her former employers.
“It wasn’t an easy decision,” she told LichfieldLive. “But I still love Lichfield and hope the BID will be the success I know it can be.
“I will still be coming back regularly for my shopping and evenings out, so I will be keeping an eye on the place.”
The Lichfield BID was approved after a ballot of city centre businesses last year.
It sees companies pay a levy which is then reinvested in projects designed to improve footfall in the city centre.
The Lichfield BID has already invested in new radios to help cut crime and anti-social behaviour while plans are also exploring the introduction of free Wi-Fi throughout the centre of Lichfield.
