Work is expected to get under way on the restoration of an award winning park in Stafford in the new year.
The £2.5 million project for the town’s Victoria Park has received funding through the Heritage Lottery Fund and will include restoring key historical features - such as the bandstand and Mottram Shelter - as well as an improved aviary and enhanced catering facility.
The work is expected to be completed by the end of 2019.
We will also provide regular updates on plans, the progress of the development, and events before and during construction.
Below is the masterplan for the park. Click on the plan to see a larger image.

- Improved café with sheltered seating

- More events in the park.
