    A great deal of time and money has been lost for no progress with the collapse of the Lichfield Council 'Friarsgate' city development plan. Now recriminations and Conservative infighting threaten to cause more delays.
    What is needed now are new ideas and a fresh approach.

    From Lichfield Live today.

    The long-awaited city centre redevelopment scheme for Friarsgate collapsed last week after the Cabinet at Lichfield District Council voted against footing a £49million bill to ensure it went ahead after private funding failed to materialise.

    Lib Dem councillor Paul Ray insists the council cannot let the land blot the city's landscape for too long. He adds: "We are now in a total mess and there are serious questions for Cllr Mike Wilcox and the Conservative administration of Lichfield District Council to answer.
