Outline planning permission has been issued by Shropshire Council to the Harworth Group for redevelopment of the former Ironbridge Power Station site.
A resolution to approve the application by was passed in September 2021, and an associated legal agreement securing supporting infrastructure for the proposals has just been completed.
The proposed development will deliver up to 1,000 new homes, in addition to a retirement village, up to 200,000 sq ft of employment space comprising offices and light industrial units, and a local centre offering convenience retail and other services.
The plans will also provide a range of community amenities such as allotments, sports pitches, and a new primary school.
Part of the site is located within the administrative area of Telford & Wrekin Council, and the two local unitary councils have worked closely together to ensure that the planning approval takes appropriate account of all relevant land use considerations.
