Plans have been drawn up for a retail centre on a new housing development in Lichfield.

Six units are being proposed for land off Yoxall Way in Streethay.

The new centre will serve the new Roman Heights development.

The proposals would see a 4,300sq ft convenience store alongside the five smaller units ranging from 1,000sq ft to 2,500sq ft.

The development would also include a 48 space car park.

A planning statement said:

“The new housing estate is almost complete and so the provision of amenities to serve the residents is required.

“The site has been under consideration since 2018 and a number of different options and layout have been considered to test market viability.

“As such, several different uses have been considered in addition to those now proposed including a nursery, a public house and a care facility.

Planning statement

The location sits on a parcel of land between Yoxall Way, Oak Way and Burton Road. The remainder of the site is being earmarked for a new community building.

Full details of the proposal can be seen on Lichfield District Council’s planning website.

  1. What about a health centre / GP surgery ? There is more than enough demand there and it might help with traffic and parking on the Trent Valley / Greenhil part of the city

  2. Well the south of Lichfield does not have a doctors surgery at all. There are already 2 in North Lichfield and 1 in City centre. Yet a huge amount of new housing has gone up in the south and more to come. When I spoke to planning about this subject, I was told funding has to come from NHS, and they don’t have the funds. Maybe housing developers should fund one?

  3. Lichfield, Lichfield, Lichfield, that’s all we hear, they build a couple of hundred houses and they get 6 retail units and a community centre. Several hundred house being built around Burntwood and what do we get ??? Sweet F. A. that’s what !! Poor relations yet again !!

  4. Darwin Park residents were initially promised this type of retail development but we never got it. Instead they built Waitrose which of course we can all afford to shop at…NOT!

  5. Carol There is already a brand new excellent nursery infants & primary on Roman Heights The Drs/ Hospital bus service etc is another issue. There is a bus shelter & turn around for buses there but as at now no bus!

  6. How about a park & ride scheme to cut the extra traffic pouring into Lichfield Centre and no extra parking places planned or possible in the centre especially as Tesco are effectivedly charging £5 for upto 3 hours. Lichfield also needs more GP practices especially as a lot of city centre housing is being built for pensioners who will inevitably need far more medical care. The Council must use leverage on developers to pay for the extra infrastructure and insist that all new houses and logistic warehouses should have solar pamnels fitted to roofs.

  7. #Geoffrey Haigh – and where would they build this park and ride? It would be yet another concrete jungle on our ever disappearing landscape and countryside. IMHO it’s not a solution.
