An artist's impression of the new Friary Outer development
A number of car parks across Lichfield have been changed to long-stay ahead of the regeneration of Friary Outer car park Work to build 60 homes, a 65-bed hotel, a restaurant, replacement toilets and a new 435 space car park on the Friary Outer site is set to begin later this year. In preparation for the closure of the existing car park, which provides 265 long-stay spaces, Lichfield District Council has temporarily changed a number of short-stay car parks across the city into long-stay facilities, including Backcester lower deck, Redcourt and University. Councillor Louise Flowith, Lichfield District Council’s cabinet member for operational services, said:
“We would like to thank people for their patience and understanding as we prepare for the works to the Friary Outer. The existing car park is well used by people who work in or spend longer in the city, and we needed to make sure there are enough replacement long-stay car parking spaces when the car park shuts. “With the changes we’ve made, there are still plenty of short-stay spaces elsewhere in the city for shorter visits, including the newly refurbished multi-storey and the top level of Cross Keys car park. “We’re proud to be involved in the redevelopment of the Friary Outer, as it will not only bring more car parking spaces to the city, it will also see 60 new homes created, as well as a hotel, restaurant and new public toilets.”
