People in Lichfield and Burntwood are being urged to have their say on a document which will help shape the future of the area over the next 20 years.
Lichfield District Council is drawing up a new Local Plan which will outline how the region will continue to meet the needs of residents in the future.
The local authority is now seeking views from local people and organisations as part of a consultation process.
Craig Jordan, head of economic growth and development, said: “Our preferred options document builds on our consultation exercises and sets out how we think the district should be shaped up to 2040.
“We’re encouraging everyone to get involved and give us their views.
“It’s a good opportunity to make sure our new Local Plan reflects local needs and desires.”
As part of the district-wide consultation, the council is holding a series of drop-in sessions:
- Fradley Village Hall on 5th December from 1.30pm to 5.30pm
- Fazeley Town Hall on 9th December from 3pm to 6pm
- Armitage Village Hall on 10th December from 3pm to 6pm
