Godwin Developments has signed a 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.
Stuart Pratt, group development director and co-founder at Godwin Developments said: “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.”
Godwin Developments are working with Lord Stafford appointed agents Savills to attract new businesses to the West Midlands town. Plans currently include a food retailer, a hotel, a multi-storey car park and a build-to-rent residential development. The proposals aim to provide improved amenities to local residents and support the long-term economic prosperity by creating up to 200 permanent jobs when fully operational, with other temporary roles being created during the development process.
Lord Stafford said: “Godwin Developments’ expertise, flexible working approach and respected track record made them an excellent appointment in managing this project. I have no doubt that this development will play a huge role in the wider re-development master plan for Stafford.”
