Proposals for next development stage of former Corus site

Stoke-on-Trent Regeneration Ltd, the joint venture between St Modwen Properties PLC and Stoke-on-Trent City Council, has submitted an outline planning application for the development of the next stage of the highly successful Etruria Valley phase of Festival Park, Stoke-on-Trent.

The proposal is for a mixed use office, business and quality industrial development on nearly 24 acres of the former Corus site, to provide more than 25,547 sq m (275,000 sq ft ) of accommodation. The site is on Forge Lane which is the new road built to serve the first phase of Etruria Valley and the new proposals build on the success already achieved.

More than 11,612 sq m (125,000 sq ft) of office and business space has already been developed including head offices for Royal Doulton plc and George S Hall, and a major office complex for Consignia. Festival Park as a whole now provides nearly 46,450 sq m (500,000 sq ft) of office and business development and is a notable example of urban regeneration.

The site is a key part of the Etruria Valley Priority Investment area which has been established by the North Staffordshire Partnership as one of the critical elements of the continuing regeneration of Stoke.
