Engie to start Rugeley redevelopment works

Engie will work on the development of the former Rugeley power station site after it gained the outline planning permission. The redevelopment works will allow housing plans to come up in Staffordshire.

Lichfield District Council and Cannock Chase District Council have approved Engie’s plans to put up 2,300 new homes. The plan in Rugeley also includes development of a school on the site of the old coal-fired power station.

Engie expects the remediation work to start starting from next month and end up in the winter of 2022. After the remediation works, infrastructure will begin in the autumn with housing parcels. The development will advance in phases.

Initial work starts to the north of the development, where the coal yards resided.  Brown & Mason, which is the demolition contractor, has spent many months bringing down old power station structures, including the chimney and the boiler house.

However, the pending work of cooling towers demolition will happen on 6th June 2021. The wider Rugeley master plan includes 12 acres of employment space and parkland alongside the River Trent.
