Regeneration of  a 25-acre part of the  former Staffordshire Coal Authority headquarters at Fenton, proposed  by Stoke-on-Trent Regeneration Ltd, is likely to start next Spring and attract new firms

and employment to the area.

Stoke-on-Trent Regeneration Ltd, the joint venture between St Modwen Properties PLC and Stoke City Council, has submitted a planning application for a 154,786 sq ft warehouse on Fenton 25 to be occupied by a local company, and for 20 small  enterprise units totalling 69,330 sq ft which will be developed speculatively.

The warehouse will be purpose-built for a Stoke firm which is planning to amalgamate its warehouse operations, currently operating from a number of smaller premises across the city, into one building.

Euan Lindsay, of Stoke-on-Trent Regeneration, said: “Securing an agreement on the large warehouse has provided an opportrunity for us to undertake a specualtive  development of the adjoining site for small enterprise  units for which there is evidence of strong demand.

“Starting the development of Fenton 25 will help to stimulate new activity and job opportunities in this particular area of the city. “We are planning units to cater for both local small companies as well as larger regional or national companies seeking a local branch. We hope, subject to planning consent, that a start can be made early Spring.”
