This latest application will see the number of apartments increase from 20 to 24 as well as the addition of a residents’ lift.
The original planning application for the scheme was approved by the council in February.
The development – known as the Foregate Building – will deliver one- and two-bedroom apartments in the heart of the town centre in a building which has stood empty for over 18 months.
- Planning granted for £17m prison conversion
- Planning granted for major redevelopment of brownfield site
- Outline planning consent granted for new garden village
Kevin Sharkey, director at Key Land Capital PLC – which is made up of Key Land Ventures and Key Land Developments – said that it was really pleased with the revised plans and excited at the prospect of creating high-quality homes to replace an unloved office building.
“We have been looking at Stafford as a great place to invest for some time.
“It is a growing town and has a strong demand for luxury apartments in a central location for young professionals.
“The Foregate Building will offer high-quality accommodation, but will still be affordable for first-time buyers.
“We can’t wait to get started in the new year.”
