PROBATION SERVICE TO MOVE TO ETRURIA OFFICE VILLAGE

The Probation Service is to consolidate various offices in the Stoke-on-Trent and Newcastle-under-Lyme area under one roof in a new 1,440 sq m (15,500 sq ft ) facility at Etruria Office Village, a speculative scheme of three office buildings totalling 4,180 sq m (45,000 sq ft ), which is being developed by Stoke-on-Trent Regeneration Ltd, the joint venture between St Modwen Properties PLC and Stoke City Council.

The move is scheduled in the autumn when the building has been fitted out. The Probation Service will adjoin the North Staffordshire office of the Crown Prosecution Service which opens later this year. Two suites totalling 557 sq m (6,000 sq ft ) are also under offer in the third building and there is continued further interest.

Andrew Cox of St Modwen, said: “Etruria Office Village has proved a great attraction to businesses and public sector organisations and a fourth building is planned for construction later this year.” Etruria Office Village is just one of many phases in the 30-acre development of Etruria Valley, an extension of Festival Park , where major occupiers include Consignia, Vodafone and G S Hall. A further 90 acres, comprising the best element of the former steelworks, will extend to the Etruria Valley scheme when planning consent is obtained for a substantial mixed use development.

Louis Taylor is acting for Stoke-on-Trent Regeneration. Colliers CRE represented the Probation Service.
