Plans have been unveiled for a major new housing development in Lichfield. Land near Shortbutts Lane has been earmarked for 450 homes and a primary school. The development would also feature retail and community buildings if plans submitted to Lichfield District Council are given the go-ahead. No detailed plans have yet been made available, but the scheme is set to include major new road construction with the initial application outlining a new link road to form part of the Lichfield Southern Bypass and the closure of Shortbutts Lane at the London Road junction. Residents will be able to have their say on the proposals via the Lichfield District Council planning website. [story-latest tag=”Shortbutts450″]
