Plans agreed for major town centre regeneration scheme

Current indicative site masterplan by Staffordshire City Council

Property developer Godwin Developments has signed a significant collaboration agreement with Lord Stafford to redevelop the former Stafford Rugby Club ground into a mixed-use development.

The 6.5-acre site, located in the Castlefields area, which is a part of the Stafford Station Gateway, is owned by Lord Stafford and is situated in close proximity to Stafford town centre and Stafford train station.

When fully redeveloped, it will play a vital part in the wider multi-million-pound regeneration plan for the area.

Plans currently include a food retailer, a hotel, a multi-storey car park and a build-to-rent residential development.

Stuart Pratt, group development director and co-founder at Godwin Developments comments: “We are delighted to be working in partnership with both Lord Stafford and Savills on this really exciting project.

“Staffordshire is an important area of development focus for us as we see high growth potential in the region. We believe that the Stafford Borough Council Regeneration Plan alongside the construction of HS2 and the Stafford Gateway Masterplan project will be key drivers to the fast track growth of the town, which is already shaping into a highly attractive investment proposition for developers and commuters alike.”

Lord Stafford comments: “I have no doubt that this development will play a huge role in the wider re-development master plan for Stafford.”
