St. Modwen, the UK’s leading regeneration specialist, is to hold a public consultation event to discuss its proposals for a residential-led mixed use development in Uttoxeter.
The development is planned on land that has been designated in East Staffordshire Borough Council’s preferred options document as a site for a mixed use scheme. It will comprise 700 new homes, 25 acres of employment space, a site for a primary school, a local retail centre, recreational facilities and open green spaces.
The proposals for the site, which lies between the A50 and Bramshall Road, also encompass improved vehicle access by upgrading the existing junction with New Road and providing a new junction on Bramshall Road. In addition new pedestrian and cycle links will provide access to existing residential areas.
The public consultation will be held on Thursday 25 April between 4pm – 8pm in The Ballroom, Uttoxeter Town Hall, 19 High Street, Uttoxeter, ST14 7HP.
Residents and interested parties will be able to view an exhibition of the proposed development and provide feedback to members of the St. Modwen project team, who will be on hand to answer any questions.
Mike Timmins, senior planning surveyor at St. Modwen, said: “The location of the site is ideal for this proposed development. It is close to shops, community amenities and the road network and is also served by several bus routes.
“Consulting with the public is an important part of the planning process. We would like local residents and businesses to attend this consultation and give us their comments and feedback on the proposals before we submit a planning application to East Staffordshire Borough Council.”
