“This part of the redevelopment of Minster Pool and Walk was not in the original plans for the historic parks makeover, as Speakers’ Corner was established after we drew up the plans. However, since then we have been working with Speakers’ Corner, Lichfield to come up with a design that will give public speakers a clearly defined space to have their say. “We are pleased the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Big Lottery Fund have allowed this extra work to be included in our historic parks programme, as it is important to make a feature out of this special place.”Canon Pete Wilcox, Chair of Lichfield’s Speakers’ Corner Founding Committee, added:
“Speakers’ Corner, Lichfield has worked closely with Lichfield District Council on the plans, and we’re all delighted that building work to clearly define Speakers’ Corner is about to start. We’re confident the improved area will attract even more speakers to engage the people of Lichfield on a range of thought-provoking issues.”
