Thank you for your votes.

A huge thank you to everyone who voted in our poll, which closed at 10pm tonight regarding funding the Friarsgate development in Lichfield versus funding a redevelopment of Sankeys Corner in Burntwood.
665 people voted, 581 for a Burntwood redevelopment and 84 for Friarsgate. In addition 126 comments were posted, a huge majority of which were overwhelmingly in favour of a Burntwood scheme. 37 people also shared the poll with their friends and colleagues.

We were clearly aware that whilst the poll was running the decision was made at LDC Cabinet level not to further consider fund raising options for Friarsgate, but we felt it worthwhile to continue the vote to measure the depth of feeling about the long term lack of development of facilities and amenities in our area.

We will now formally ensure that Lichfield District Council and Burntwood Town Council are made aware of your votes and comments and we hope they will respond accordingly.
