A Cabinet meeting which will see the future of Friary Grange Leisure Centre debated his set to be held in a bigger venue to allow more people to attend.
More than 7,500 people have now signed a petition in a bid to prevent the facility from closing.
Lichfield District Council has now revisited the decision, which has been caused by plans for the profit-making elements of the leisure centre to be transferred to The Friary School to support a plan to become an academy.
Cllr Doug Pullen, leader of the local authority, has previously pledged to hold the next stage of the debate over the site’s future in public – a move which has led the council to consider increasing the capacity for the meeting.
He said: “I’ve said that we will be an open and transparent council, so we’re in the process of securing a larger venue for our 7th October Cabinet meeting so that as many people as want to attend can do so.
“We will also dedicate 45 minutes to public participation – an unprecedented step.”
