People living in Lichfield are being given the chance to have their say on how £400,000 is spent on projects in the city. The Section 106 funding has been made available by developers and 38 schemes have made applications for a share of the funding. An event at Darwin Hall on March 23, from 3.30pm to 6.30pm will allow residents to give their views on which projects deserve the funding. Among the projects are: 
  • Allotments
  • A community café
  • Enhancing sports facilities
  • Indoor and outdoor play areas
  • Improving cultural and arts facilities
  • Creating a woodland area
  • Environmental improvements
  • Staffordshire Hoard in Lights
  • A statue of Erasmus Darwin
Council officers will be on hand at the Section 106 Uncovered event to answer any questions, and to collect comments about how the £400,000 should be spent to benefit Lichfield City.  Councillor Neil Roberts said:
“We hope lots of people come to this event and give us their views, as we need to make sure any funding decisions are based on what the local community wants for their city.”
