There are areas and sections of the community that experience significant disadvantages typically in terms of high unemployment, low incomes, high benefit dependency, high crime and low educational attainment.
If these areas are to continue to prosper the Council needs to remove barriers to business growth, enable disadvantaged communities to share the benefits of sustainable economic growth and offer a pleasant and safe place to live and work. These are the Council's regeneration challenges.
Stafford is a prosperous and growing County Town which will benefit from significant investment over the next few years.
There is a breathtaking scale of proposed investment in key sites, which are spread over the whole town centre and will bring new shops, restaurants, car parking, multi-screen cinema, leisure and entertainment uses, offices, houses and hotels.
