Three more areas of Lichfield are hoping to become designated neighbourhood areas.

Armitage with Handsacre, Longdon and Wigginton & Hopwas have been given the go-ahead by Lichfield District Council to draw up their neighbourhood plans.

These documents will shape how their communities look over the next 15 or more years.

Among the aspects being discussed by the parishes are issues such as protecting valued buildings and open spaces.
