Stafford Station Gateway Masterplan

Bringing communities together across a railway line

Transforming 69 acres of underused land adjacent to Stafford’s railway station, this masterplan is a new commercial, residential and leisure development that would turn the area into a thriving, active community.

Boosted by the town’s location at the heart of the proposed HS2 route, the masterplan creates up to 20,000 sq ft of commercial space, alongside hundreds of new high-quality homes, a hotel and multi-storey car park. There is also brand-new leisure, retail and food and beverage space to create a fresh and vibrant centre.

HS2 is expected to cut travel time to London to approx. 50 minutes, making Stafford a major new transport hub, and our masterplan establishes the amenities to optimise the opportunity on the town’s doorstep.

The masterplan will also focus on creating walkable neighbourhoods that are well-connected to the town centre, thereby encouraging more active lifestyles and making community wellbeing a priority.
