A vote will also take place on the same day for the Lichfield City Neighbourhood Plan, while a similar ballot will take place in Whittington and Fisherwick.

If adopted, the plans will form part of Lichfield District Council’s Local Plan, which helps the local authority to determine planning applications and future development.
