Plans lodged for £34m Telford regeneration scheme

Plans have now been submitted for the £34m regeneration of the Telford Station Quarter, as part of the first phase of the Telford Town Investment Plan.

The 861,113 sq ft site between Telford Central Train Station and Telford town centre is set to be regenerated in an effort to improve connectivity and local amenities.

Phase one of the development aims to deliver 85 one and two-bedroom apartments, 102 two and three-bedroom homes, a digital skills and enterprise hub alongside a hotel complex by 2025.

500 jobs would be created upon completion, with 250 roles to be created during the construction phase.

After securing £22.3m from the Government’s Towns Fund, Telford & Wrekin Council appointed Willmott Dixon to support the delivery of the first phase of the Station Quarter project.

A statement from the applicant said: “The proposed development at Station Quarter represents an opportunity to create a truly sustainable community in the heart of Telford on a poor quality, largely vacantbrownfield site which is acting as a hindrance to the town’s ongoing prosperity.

“Its mixed-use nature would deliver a range of direct and indirect benefits for those who live within, work within and visit Telford and reconnect the currently divided town centre.”
