Western Bypass football pitches

The Western Bypass (A51) public open space is home to a variety of football pitches from mini to adult size, which are maintained to a high standard by our operational services team. The park has a free car park.

All pitches are available to hire for the season, one-off matches, or training courses. Please contact the parks team on 01543 308863 or email parks@lichfielddc.gov.uk to confirm availability and discuss further.

Help keep the public space clean and safe

  • The public open space at the Western Bypass is also an ideal spot for family sporting get togethers and picnics.
  • Please help to look after your parks and open spaces, use the litter and dog waste bins at the site, or take your litter home.
  • Please remember if you allow your dog to foul in a public place, and fail to clean up after it, you are breaking the law.

We inspect all of our sites regularly, however, if you spot anything you believe needs our urgent attention, please call 01543 308867 or email parks@lichfielddc.gov.uk.
