Previous Local Authority `Development Team’ meetings identify the site as an important site that has the ability to enhance the town centre of Burslem. The site is defined as an `out of town’ location, being more than 500m from the town centre. Subject to planning, the site is considered suitable for Retail (A1), Leisure (D2) and Residential (C3) development. `Live/work’ schemes would also be supported as would any form of commercial activity that would create employment, without detriment to the neighbouring residential stock.
