Lichfield District Council Launches Three New City Centre Gateway Investment Opportunities at UKREiiF 2024

Lichfield District Council is excited to announce the launch of three iconic new development and investment opportunities in the heart of Lichfield City Centre. These opportunities will be officially unveiled at the UK Real Estate Investment & Infrastructure Forum (UKREiiF) 2024, taking place from May 21-23. Leader of the Council, Councillor Doug Pullen, Chief Executive, Simon Fletcher and Chief Operating Officer, Kerry Dove will be available at Stand E22 to share details and meet potential development partners.

The new opportunities are part of the gateway Birmingham Road Site, a pivotal project designed to transform the city centre. Anchored by an Everyman Cinema complex, these developments offer a once-in-a-generation chance to shape the future of Lichfield City Centre and the wider District. The council is seeking high-quality residential and commercial developers who share their vision to maximize the potential of this site.
