Magistrates court and probation service building demolition
Staffordshire County Council is starting the next phase of the Eastgate Regeneration scheme which involves the demolition of the former Stafford Magistrates Court and Probation Service buildings near to the town centre. The Eastgate Regeneration scheme is an important part of the county council’s economic growth programme to aid recovery from the impact of the pandemic. This will make a major contribution to the overall regeneration of Stafford town centre which is essential to its long-term vitality.
When are the works taking place?
Demolition work will begin week commencing 13th September 2021 and we will need to close a section of South Walls in both directions next to the former Magistrates Court building from 14th September for this to be done safely. The road closure will also facilitate the disconnection of a gas main as part the works.
When will the works be completed?
The road closure will be in place for up to four weeks, acting as a safety exclusion zone whilst the 11m high building is demolished. Following the demolition, the existing private car park will be retained in the interim with new landscaping planting provided. Works are due to be completed before Christmas 2021.
Will I be able to access my home/business?
Yes, access to all businesses, the registrar, local car parks and loading areas will be maintained.
What effect could the works have on me?
Access to all businesses, the registrar, local car parks and loading areas will be maintained by a signed diversion route via Bridge Street. The bus lane will be suspended with new signed temporary bus stops provided.
