Latest images of what remains at Rugeley Power Station

By Jordan Reynolds | Rugeley | News | Published:

These are the latest images of the former Rugeley Power Station after five areas have been demolished.

The first demolition using explosives took place in February last year and the most recent, involving the 45-metre high steel 'bunker bay', took place on February 13 this year.

The demolition of the site is set to make way for 2,300 homes, housing for the elderly, commercial buildings and a primary school.

And plans were announced for a mixed-use development at the end of 2018 - which would transform the site into an entirely new sustainable and smart community.

Cannock Chase District Council and Lichfield District Council have both approved the outline planning application, but a reserved matters application with the finer details will have to be submitted at a later date.

The other main structures, including the rest of the boiler house, chimney and cooling towers are scheduled for controlled collapse in 2020. The complete demolition of the site is expected in 2021.
