Completion of Lichfield Southern bypass is a long-held objective of Staffordshire County Council. By entering into these two agreements (alongside the Two Party Underbridge Agreement already approved with Network Rail) SCC will secure the land and permissions necessary to undertake and complete the bridge and carriageway works at Birmingham Road.

Alternative options considered:

Delegated approval to enter into two agreements with Network Rail pursuant to SCC Cabinet resolution of 15th May 2019 (reproduced below for ease of reference).

1. Deed of Dedication
2. Agreement for the Transfer of land for steps and parking from SCC to Network Rail and subsequent transfers in accordance with the terms of the Agreement

Both documents are now agreed with Network Rail and SCC Legal Team and ready to be sealed and signed.
