Liberty Park, Lichfield set to deliver jobs boost

New images of Liberty Park in Lichfield have been released as its development continues on schedule.

Staffordshire County Council is supporting the project by carrying out initial infrastructure work.  The project is being led by Liberty Property Trust, working with its development partner Stoford, to deliver a new industrial park and warehouse development next to the A38.

Andrew Blevins, managing director at Liberty Property Trust, said:  “Liberty Park is an important example of Staffordshire County Council working with industry to enable commercial development and jobs to come to Lichfield. The new access infrastructure, which is opening up the development site, has been jointly funded by Government and Liberty Property Trust, and will be completed by October.

“Since Liberty Park was launched in March this year, it has already attracted interest from potential occupiers well placed to create jobs and economic growth for the region.”

Staffordshire County Council economy leader Mark Winnington said: “To have close to full employment in Staffordshire speaks volumes to the strength of the local economy now. Developments like Liberty Park demonstrate how the county council is working with businesses to create growth and opportunity.

“We’re pleased to be able to lay the foundations so that Liberty Property Trust and Stoford can deliver a leading regional industrial and warehouse development which will play an important part in Staffordshire’s continued success.”

Liberty Park, Lichfield is being marketed by letting consultants CBRE and NRS, who are already talking terms with potential occupiers.
