A campaign group is urging people to speak out on plans to build apartments on land in Lichfield.

The Curborough Action Group is bidding to prevent Lichfield District Council allowing construction on sites at Netherstowe and Leyfields.

More than 1,000 people signed a petition against the plan for eight one bedroom apartments at Netherstowe.

But with the deadline on a consultation process approaching, a spokesperson for the group said it was important residents made their voices heard.

“The council have issued a disposal of land consultation, If you want to object you have until midday on 2nd December.

“Netherstowe field is an area for the residents of Curborough and Stowe to enjoy.

“This land should not be used to build housing of any kind on – not to mention the horse chestnut trees, which have a long history with local residents and should be retained.

“There is plenty of land in Lichfield which can be used for developments, this site should not be part of this.”

  1. What about eight one bed flats in the old Davidson House- now that does need tasteful development. Such a lovely building in its day and needs the same treatment as the Quick save building.
    Please Please – do not build on any more green spaces

  2. You will never stop the greed of councils and developers destroying our open spaces. If this crisis has taught us anything it’s that those in charge will do as they please. Such a sorry world we live in now good bye green spaces hello more concrete
