The billboard site in Lichfield that’s up for sale

A 3,000sq ft plot on Upper St John Street which currently houses a large advertising billboard is being sold by auction house Strettons in London on 16th July.

It is one of a number of sites being sold on behalf of advertising agency JC Decaux.

The irregular shaped site is close to the Shell petrol station and about half a mile from Lichfield City station.

The land has a guide price of between £9,000 and £10,000.

Strettons’ director Philip Waterfield said: “The plots are the latest in a series of land investment sites we have sold on behalf of JC Decaux, the majority of which have performed well in previous auctions.

“Given their use as billboard locations, many of the sites sit in prominent positions so could suit a range of uses, from keeping them as advertising locations, to developing them into houses, subject to the necessary consents.”
