Call for Lichfield’s rural communities to have their say

Rural communities around Lichfield are being invited to have their say on improving their areas.

A series of follow-up workshops are being organised after Lichfield District Council met villagers in February 2011 to discuss the future of a number of rural areas.

The council is now hoping people from the villages of Alrewas, Mile Oak, Fazeley, Little Aston, Armitage with Handsacre, Shenstone and Whittington will once again give their views.

Councillor Neil Roberts, Lichfield District Council’s Cabinet Member for Development Services, said:

“A big thank you to everyone who came to our rural workshops and gave us their views. We had lots of useful feedback, which we have now compiled. Whether or not villagers made it to any of our past consultation workshops, we’re still keen to hear their views about the ideas that have been put forward by local people.

“The information we gather will help inform our plans for how the area could be improved – from local jobs and access to services, through to housing needs and leisure activities.”

Programme of rural exhibitions:

  • Alrewas Village Hall on September 28 from 4pm to 7pm.
  • Mile Oak Community Centre on September 30 4pm to 7pm.
  • Little Aston Primary School on October 3 from 3.30pm to 6.30pm.
