Land off Beaconside - Marston Gate - Stafford - Staffordshire

Taylor Wimpey is preparing proposals for the second phase of residential development at Beaconside, Marston Gate, Stafford.

  • Overview

    Land off Beaconside

    We have been granted outline planning permission for a residential development of more than 400 new homes on land at Beaconside, Marston Gate, Stafford.

    We have also been granted reserved matters planning permission for Phase 1 of this scheme, which comprises 257 new homes in the eastern section of the proposed development site. This phase of the development is now on sale.

    We are now preparing initial plans for the next phase of our Beaconside development and will be holding a public consultation event in the near future as our emerging proposals take shape.

  • About the site

    The development site

    The overall Beaconside development site covers an area of 21.8 hectares and was formerly in agricultural use.

    It is located on the northern fringes of the Stafford settlement area, with the A34 Stone Road providing direct access to the town centre. The A513 Beaconside on the southern boundary of the site provides a link to Junction 14 of the M6.

    Our proposed development site lies to the east of the A34, beyond which lie the Prime Point and Prologis Park employment areas. To the south of the site is the A513 Beaconside and beyond this is existing residential development off Parkside Avenue. To the north and east, the site is bordered by open farmland, with Redhill Farm to the north. Marston Gate Farm lies to the east on Marston Lane.

    The overall site consists of a series of fields separated by hedgerow, with Phase 1 of the development now under construction, occupying the eastern portion of the site.

    There is an existing pond in the centre of the site which will be retained and enhanced as part of the development to create a visual feature and to alleviate surface water run-off.

    The development site is located in Flood Zone 1, which means it has the lowest risk of flooding.

    The Phase 2 site is the western section of the site and abuts Stone Road.


  • What's proposed

    Our proposals

    Following discussions with Stafford Borough Council, we developed an overall masterplan for our proposed development. We are now working on detailed proposals for the second phase of residential development, having already received planning permission for Phase 1.

    The existing outline consent for the overall site has established the principle of residential development, as well as access from Beaconside. Our Phase 2 proposals will deal with detailed elements such as property design, layout and landscaping. We will consult with local people on our new proposals before submitting our Phase 2 planning application in the near future.

  • Community

    Local contributions

    We will provide a number of contributions to the local community as part of our overall Beaconside development. These will include contributions towards education and public open space.
