Pic: Whittington and Fisherwick Parish Council

Whittington and Fisherwick could become the latest party of Lichfield to become a designated neighbourhood area.

Whittington & Fisherwick Parish Council is the eleventh parish to apply to Lichfield District Council to become a neighbourhood area.

If successful, the move would be the first stage in the process of creating a local neighbourhood plan. 

Councillor Ian Pritchard, Lichfield District Council’s Cabinet Member for Economic Growth & Development, said: “Gaining local support for a neighbourhood area is an important step in creating a neighbourhood plan, which is why we are encouraging people that live in or around Whittington or Fisherwick to feedback their thoughts on this proposal.”

A consultation is giving residents the chance to comment on the proposed area designation. This will run until  March 26, 2014.
