strategy & vision


This project will be a single raise to provide funding towards the restoration and conversion of an existing Victorian era water tower close to the town centre of Stafford, the county town of Staffordshire in the West Midlands.

The property comprises of a 4/5 storey derelict water tower estimated to have been constructed circa 1884. The property is located fronting onto St Georges Parkway and forms part of the redevelopment of the former St Georges Hospital in a residential location on the outskirts of Stafford town centre. Stafford is the county town of Staffordshire with a population of 63,681 (2011 census). Full planning permission has been granted by the Stafford Borough Council (ref. no.19/29943/FUL) in conjuction with listed building consent 19/29944/LBC to restore and convert the existing Victorian era water tower to a single-family residential unit.
