Michael Fabricant is backing opponents to the road widening at The Friary roundabout in the centre of Lichfield. “The glory of Lichfield is its leafy lanes and open parkland. Plans to shave off land from the Festival Gardens for a road widening scheme is just not on.
“Although this is a decision for the County and local Government, having now seen the plans I have let the County know of my firm objection to these proposals.
“Excessive construction – and many might say there is too much already – will spoil the character of Lichfield and will kill the goose that lays the golden eggs for property developers and local councils.”
