Meaford Business Park
Developing the largest brownfield site in the county
We have completed infrastructure works to provide roads and utilities at the Meaford Business Park near Stone.
The infrastructure works will pave the way for the private developer (St. Modwen Properties) to begin construction on the largest undeveloped brownfield site in the county and could provide 2,200 jobs.
The works have included building a new roundabout junction with the A34, improving Meaford road, and significantly improving facilities for pedestrians and cyclists throughout, as well as creating a second roundabout junction to directly serve the business park.
These works have helped open up 84 acres of previously undeveloped land and could accomodate almost 1.2million square feef of high quality floor space for business.
The project has a total value of £6million. Funding was secured through the Government’s Local Growth Fund by the Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire Local Enterprise Partnership, together with a contribution from the private developer, St Modwen.
Boosting energy creation nationally
Meaford Gas Power Station has now been granted development consent by the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy.
The development, which proposes a 299 Megawatt gas fired power station at the newly created Meaford Business Park near Stone, will be a big boost for jobs locally and energy creation nationally.
