Elford Village

Bus shelter relocation

 As there is currently a planning application at Lichfield District Council for the land at the former Sports and Social Club to be redeveloped for housing, the developer and planners will require the Parish Council’s bus shelter to be moved from the site. Councillors are hoping to meet a representative of the developer soon to discuss how and when this will happen, along with other matters about the site redevelopment.

Although there is no longer a bus service the Councillors have decided to keep the shelter in the village so that it can continue to be used by older school pupils while they are waiting for their coach. The Parish Council has considered various sites to relocate the shelter and has decided that the most suitable place would be a little further along The Beck, at the rear of the pavement to the left of the Croft Close junction when approaching from the Club.

The School Transport team have now told us that this relocation may not be possible, and the matter will be discussed at the next Parish Council meeting.
