CSC's Potteries development gets council go-ahead

Capital Shopping Centres has received planning approval for a £14 million upgrade to the Potteries Shopping Centre in Stoke-on-Trent.

The property development company said the scheme will bring hundreds of new jobs through the addition of a multi-screen cinema complex and new restaurants.

CSC will re-develop an underused brownfield site for the scheme, harmonising it with the surrounding area through landscaping. It will also will promote sustainable transport through a Green Travel Plan.

Paul Francis, general manager of The Potteries, said: "Stoke-on-Trent is crying out for investment of this nature and the Council’s decision will be welcomed by residents and the millions of people who shop in Hanley every year.

"Our plans will create much needed new jobs and provide a real boost to the city’s economy, not to mention offering a great place for families to come and enjoy. As a long-term partner to this great city, we’re proud to invest in its future and can’t wait to start delivering this plan."

CSC, which has owned The Potteries since 1988, plans to start construction on site later this year and will open the centre's new leisure extension in early 2014.
