A number of local projects have been boosted after receiving a share of £300,000.
The money was distributed by Lichfield District Council from he Community Infrastructure Levy which is paid by developers working on schemes across the area.
The successful applicants included Lichfield and Hatherton Canals Restoration Trust who received £35,000 to support efforts to reinstate the canal between London Road and Cricket Lane, and The Westgate Practice which was awarded £120,000 to extend the Greenhill Health Centre.
Staffordshire County Council successfully applied for two projects and will receive £101,000 to provide more secondary school places at King Edward VI School, and £44,000 to make improvements to Chasewater Country Park.
Councillor Iain Eadie, Cabinet member for investment, economic growth and tourism, said: “All the projects are very different and will have a big impact on the local community.
“There will be more opportunities to apply for funding and we look forward to supporting even more local infrastructure projects in the future.”
