Lichfield District Council has set aside £10 million to fund the new leisure centre.

Will the outside pitch have floodlights?

The 3G football pitch will have floodlights. As part of the planning process we will consider the impact on houses surrounding the new leisure centre that may be affected.

Will the outside pitch be fenced off?

The 3G football pitch at the new leisure centre will be fenced and floodlit.

Will building on Stychbrook Park have negative impacts?

Local concerns include the loss of green space, traffic issues on already busy roads and issues for neighbouring houses with potential noise pollution, light pollution and traffic congestion.
All of these aspects will be dealt with through the design and planning process, which includes consultation with local residents and statutory consultees.
