Stafford Borough offers the commercial opportunities and lifestyle that suits growing businesses. It has recently seen a wealth of major investment and development and there's more to come, including the £500 million revitalisation of Stafford Town Centre.
With a central location, unrivalled communications infrastructure, the largest office park between Birmingham and Manchester and rental costs up to 64% lower than either of those major cities, Stafford Borough offers the ideal business base.

Stafford and Stone Town Centres
Stafford is the perfect destination with all the attributes you would expect of an historic county town - quality independent and national retailers, quaint cobbled side streets, a celebrated art gallery, a beautiful Victorian park and a delicious variety of places to eat.
The attractive and bustling market town of Stone is the Food and Drink Capital of Staffordshire and is home to a wide choice of quality restaurants, speciality shopping and the popular annual Food and Drink Festival.
The Borough Council in partnership with other organisations is working to help unemployed people to find new employment opportunities or to access training and support. More information can be found at the Employment Opportunities page.
