The council has launched the website www.lichfielddc.gov.uk/birminghamroad to keep residents and stakeholders up to date on plans for the development of the Birmingham Road Site. 

The Birmingham Road Site, the location of the former Friarsgate scheme, is on the southern edge of Lichfield city centre. The council has put together a cross-party working group to oversee the drawing up plans for the longer-term re-development of the site, which includes the former police station, bus station, former Tempest Ford garage and showroom.
