Lichfield residents to have a say on how £175,000 of funding is spent

Lichfield residents are being given the chance to say how £175,000 of funding should be spent in the Fazeley, Bonehill and Mile Oak areas.

The money has been provided by developers as part of section 106 agreements and a number of projects have applied for a share of the cash.

Two events are being planned for local residents to view the projects and give feedback on them.

The first is at Mile Lane Link in Fazeley on May 12, from 3.30pm to 6.30pm. This session offers locals the chance to talk to the council’s section 106 team, and meet the groups that have applied for funding to find out more about the proposed projects.

The second event will be held at Coton Green Football Club (as part of Fazeley Festival) on June 4, from 12 noon to 4pm. Council officers will be on hand at this session to answer questions about how section 106 funding could help the local community, and to find out how residents think it should be spent in their area.

Lichfield District Council received nine applications for part of the £175,000 section 106 funding. Among the projects are:

  • Updating community facilities.
  • Environmental improvements.
  • A garden project.
  • Renovations to Fazeley Town Hall.
  • A new scout hut.

Richard King, Lichfield District Council’s strategic director of democratic, development and legal services, said:

“It’s really important that lots of people tell us which projects they like best and why, because we will use this feedback when deciding how to distribute the funding.”

Residents can also have a say online at www.lichfielddc.gov.uk/voiceit before June 6.
