David Lock Associates – specialists in town planning and urban design – has produced a draft masterplan for Lichfield city centre on Lichfield District Council’s behalf, supported by Springboard – city centre characterisation specialists – and Integrated Transport Planning.

It will shape the future growth of the city centre, set out opportunities for enhancing the quality of the environment and the range of different uses it offers, and provide a prospectus for investment in Lichfield.

In partnership with the district council, David Lock Associates is running a public consultation on the draft masterplan from Monday 6 January to Monday 3 February 2020.

The draft masterplan is available to read online at www.lichfielddc.gov.uk/lichfieldmasterplan where you will also find an interactive consultation survey, which makes it even easier to give your views.

There will also be public drop-in events at Lichfield Library on Friday 17 January between 9am and 5pm and on Saturday 18 January between 9am and 4pm. A team from David Lock Associates will be available at the events to talk through the proposals and answer questions.

Once the consultation closes, the feedback will be collated and reviewed with appropriate changes made to the masterplan before it is considered by councillors in the spring.
