The Plough Maltings is a sought-after Grade II listed development comprising a mix of 32 luxury studio, one, and two-bedroom apartments. The development is located within the historic Plough Maltings brewery building and offers 51 car parking spaces and ample bicycle storage. The heart of Burton On Trent's town centre is just a 3-minute walk away.
Burton-on-Trent is one of the best-connected cities in the UK. Its excellent transport network provides easy access to all UK, European and international destinations. Burton-on-Trent's train station is ideally located between both Derby and Birmingham. Derby city centre can be reached within 9 minutes and Birmingham within 25 minutes. Both these cities will be HS2 connected in the near future, with train times to London being reduced to under an hour. Just a 25-minute train ride away is East Midlands Airport. The proximity to it allows connectivity to international locations. Every year the airport serves 4 million people and travels to over 80 international destinations.
Both Derby and Birmingham offer massive employment opportunities. Billions in regeneration and investment are being pumped into both cities, opening up Burton-on-Trent to massive opportunities. Derby is an international hub for aerospace, automotive and rail industries. These 3 industries alone employ 20,000 locally, with many more employed by companies supply chain. The city is seen as a dark horse in many industries, with it being 2nd in the UK for millennial start-ups and per person income being the second highest in the UK outside of London. With a population of over a million, Birmingham is the second largest city in Britain. It’s also one of the most productive and economically successful growing faster than any other city region outside London, with output up by 35 per cent over the past five years. The Midlands is a very innovative and youthful area in the UK. The Midlands is home to 20 universities, producing 112,000 graduates per year - boosting the job pool vastly.
Last year Burton landed £22.8 million which was to be spent on regenerating the town centre.
Eight projects were included in the bid:
University learning hub - a move that would expand the university's current presence at the local hospital by creating a new regional learning centre within the existing Brewhouse arts centre.
High Street linkages - this would take the first steps towards enabling the realisation of the new High Street masterplan, focusing on enhancing the area around the existing library site and Andressey Passage and looking at how to connect the riverside to the High Street.
Library and enterprise hub at the Market Hall - the creation of a public services and enterprise hub at the Market Hall building, bringing key services together in a prominent town centre location, driving footfall around the Market Place area and beyond.
New pedestrian and cycling crossing - a new walking and cycling bridge that connects the Stapenhill Hollows and surrounding residential areas to the town centre at the redeveloped library and Garden of Remembrance, overlooking the enhanced Washlands central area.
Trent and Mersey Canal towpath improvements - the improvement of the walking and cycling path between the major development at Branston Locks and the town centre through the Shobnall Playing Fields area.
Cycle network enhancements - the implementation of the local cycling and walking infrastructure plan for Burton, making significant improvements to the cycle network in and around the town.
College specialist education offer - the creation of two new specialist facilities at Burton and South Derbyshire College; a Health and Social Care Realistic Environment and Digital, Creative and Data STEAM Hub.
