I share an update on the various initiatives that Lichfield District Council is actively pursuing to further invigorate our local economy. The council’s focus has been on identifying and implementing strategies that foster growth, encourage entrepreneurship, and create an environment conducive to sustainable economic development.
I was delighted to engage in productive discussions with the passionate and dedicated local business owners who posed thoughtful questions and shared their invaluable insights, providing us with a clearer understanding of the challenges they face daily.
