More than 600 people have now joined a campaign to regenerate Rugeley.

Rugeley Power Station when it was still a functioning site

It comes after a major plan to transform Rugeley Power Station sparked calls for the regeneration of other areas across the town.

A new campaign group, Power for All, has been launched by members of the community looking to preserve and develop the area for the benefit of both residents and tourists.

It was formed after community meetings were held to showcase the masterplan by owner ENGIE to place 2,300 homes on the power station site, as well as 1.2 hectares of mixed-use buildings, five hectares of employment land, a primary school, open space and key infrastructure.

A meeting has since been held by Power for All, which brought together dozens of residents and businesses to share ideas for the future as well as concerns.

And now more than 600 people have joined an online group aiming to make a difference to the town.
