Residents and traders are invited to a public consultation event for Stoke-on-Trent Central Business District (CBD).
Genr8 Developments will unveil the detailed proposals for the site between Warner Street, Broad Street and Potteries Way, at a public exhibition at the Mitchell Arts Centre, Broad Street, Stoke-on-Trent, on Thursday November, 1, from 12 pm – 7.30pm.
Genr8 Developments is working alongside Stoke-on-Trent City Council and other stakeholders including the Homes & Communities Agency to create a new Central Business District (CBD).
The development is at the design stage of the first office building and public realm, which will be the subject of a reserved matters planning application.
Genr8 and their technical advisors will be available at the event to talk through the proposals and answer questions.
Following this event, all comments will be considered before the submission of the planning application. There will be further opportunity to comment on the development through Stoke-On-Trent City Council application process.
Stoke-On-Trent City Council leader, Councillor Mohammed Pervez said: “Residents of Stoke-on-Trent have identified the need for jobs as a priority.
“This is the basis of our Mandate for Change and a successful city needs a successful city centre.
“The Central Business District (CBD) will diversify our economic base and help us to become more resilient in the face of future economic challenges.
“I welcome the consultation on the plans and hope people will take advantage of the opportunity to share their views on the development.
“The CBD will have a huge positive impact on our city.”

The Mandate for Change was launched in July last year to transform Stoke-on-Trent into a great working city. It is based on four ‘pillars’: making Stoke-on-Trent the place to bring business; supporting and developing existing businesses; working with people to promote independence and healthy lives; and making Stoke-on-Trent a great city to live in.
