Staffordshire County Council (SCC) and East
Staffordshire Borough Council (ESBC) have worked together to
consider options for the improvement and future proofing of the
town of Burton upon Trent; both as a centre for people to visit and
shop, and a place for people to live and work to create a
“Better, Brighter Burton in the future”. The report
seeks Cabinet support for the Strategy and further exploration and
implementation of the proposals through the Burton Town
“We are working closely with East Staffordshire Borough Council to regenerate Burton and enhance what is already a vibrant town. We are also soon to begin works to renovate the forecourt area of the station.
There are many assets as outlined in the strategy and it is important we make the very best of these as we take the town forward. While retaining and protecting Burton’s historic features is important, we want to ensure it is a modern and attractive town which will bring in new residents, visitors and businesses.
Some of the work we are already doing echoes the report recommendations and the rest of the strategy gives us some direction as to how we progress in the future with our partners.”
