A Lichfield residents’ group have welcomed “more feasible” plans for the Friarsgate redevelopment.
Lichfield District Council has recently unveiled the latest vision for the long-awaited city centre revamp.
Beacon Street Area Residents’ Association (BSARA) had called for a rethink on previous plans.
In its latest newsletter to locals, the group says the current version of Friarsgate looks to be more realistic.
“Having viewed the latest plans, we are of the opinion that they are far more feasible,” a spokesperson said.
“We especially welcome the idea of creating more city centre housing.”
They are now encouraging more local residents to examine the plans and have their say.
“We are still concerned about the management of the highway infrastructure, which still needs a lot more careful thought,” the spokesperson added.
“The buildings themselves seem a little boring in design, but we would encourage all to express their own views.”
