St. Modwen, the UK’s leading regeneration specialist, has consulted with the local community on its proposed redevelopment of AREVA T and D’s premises off Fair Way, Stafford via a series of open forums.
Local residents and interested parties attended two consultation events at the AREVA T and D site this week where they viewed St. Modwen’s proposals for the creation of a £55 million science park including; new facilities for AREVA, a refurbished Sports and Social Club and new housing.
The open forum provided attendees with the opportunity to view information and images from St. Modwen’s outline proposals for the site. Representatives from St. Modwen and AREVA T and D, together with the architects, planning consultants and engineers working on the project, were on-hand to answer questions and receive comments and feedback on the proposals.
The company’s outline plans propose replacing AREVA’s existing buildings with a new science park comprising offices, workshops, laboratories and research buildings. The existing Sports and Social Club, which is the largest of its type in Stafford and used by many people in the local community, would be retained and refurbished with the balance of the site, extending to around 20 acres, being proposed for residential development.
Feedback from the public consultations will assist St. Modwen in preparation for submitting a planning application to Stafford Borough Council for the new 330,000 sq ft development and housing scheme.
Information shared at the open forums can now be viewed at www.stmodwen-thefairway.co.uk.
