Consultation launched on future of Stoke city centre

Local people’s views are to be sought as part of a major study on the future of Stoke-on-Trent city centre.

Stoke-on-Trent City Council has announced plans to develop a ten-year plan for the city centre. The consultation is planned to start in the summer and its findings will feed into the wider Local Plan for the city.

The announcement comes on the back of real estate and property investment event UKREiiF, where the city council has launched its Investment Prospectus, featuring a range of development and investment opportunities.

Councillor Jane Ashworth, leader of Stoke-on-Trent City Council, said: “This is an exciting time for Stoke-on-Trent. We have a number of major projects in progress or preparing to start. We need a joined-up approach to maximise the potential for the city and local people. We’re really excited to embark on this journey with our residents as understanding their views and experiences are key to this process.”

Initial views will be sought from the public which will be developed into more detailed thematic workshops to help shape the plan. More details around the timetable for consultation will be announced over coming weeks.
