New homes could be built on the site of a former day nursery in Lichfield.

The old Humpty Dumpty’s building on Cherry Orchard will be demolished and be replaced by seven properties if planners give the proposals the go-ahead.

The site is currently empty following the nursery’s move to a new home at Trent Valley, although its parking facilities are currently used on an unofficial basis by parents at nearby schools.

In a statement supporting their application, the developers said: “The application site is located in an area that is predominantly residential in character.

“The proposed development will not be unduly intrusive in the street scene.”

People can see the plans in full and have their say on the proposals via Lichfield District Council’s planning website.
