Infrastructure sites and project news

The county council is involved in almost £250 million of investment in business parks, infrastructure, superfast broadband and skills.

Working with our partners, we are supporting the development of eight key business sites across Staffordshire - giving local businesses the space they need to grow, and a cost-effective base  for businesses to relocate here to create jobs and invest in the local supply chain. 

We also support 395 businesses in our 11 affordable Enterprise Centres to support businesses to start up and grow with flexible lease terms.
