Branston Locks development - Burton

The Branston Locks development, which is to the south west of Burton-upon-Trent, will see 400 acres of land immediately west of the A38 developed with 2,500 new homes, a range of community facilities and a 50-acre employment site.

Staffordshire County Council will be delivering a £5 million package of road and infrastructure works. Works will start on the 20th June on the A38 Branston Interchange to the areas immediately around the existing canal bridge. Nurton Developments has planning permission to build on the Branston Locks site.

Funding for the infrastucture and roadworks is from the government's Local Growth Deal, which was accessed by the county council and Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire Local Enterprise Partnership.

Creating a sustainable urban extension for Burton-upon-Trent

Branston Locks is one of the most significant development sites in Staffordshire, and creates a sustainable urban extension for Burton-upon-Trent.

Infrastructure works will pave the way for the development which will bring significant employment and housing improvements, which include:

  • A new 20 hectare business park creating up to 3,800 jobs and 1 million square feet of high quality industrial floor space
  • Development of 2,500 new homes for Burton-upon-Trent
  • The creation of a new 40,000 square feet local centre
  • Primary school
  • Branston Road High School
  • Hotel with 80 bedrooms
  • Pub/restaurant
  • Sports and recreational facilities
  • Residential care home
  • Attractive open spaces
  • Roads and cycle routes

The development builds on the development of the A38 West Mildands to East Midlands Growth corridor, which plays a major part in Staffordshire's economic success story.

Road construction

Works will start from the 20th June 2016 from the A38 Branston Interchange to the areas immediately around the existing canal bridge.

All infrastructure works are expected to be completed during late summer 2017.
