Call goes out to choose new name for former Rugeley Power Station site

Residents have been called on to have their say on what the former Rugeley Power Station site should be called amid a major redevelopment.

Major structures on the site – including the iconic cooling towers – have already been torn down to make way for 2,300 low-carbon homes.

And an all-through school – which will cater for up to 1,400 pupils and a nursery – is due to open its doors in September 2023.

Now chiefs from EQUANS, a company of site owners ENGIE, have called on residents in Rugeley to share their ideas for the future name of the site.

On their website, they said: "The old power station site is transforming into a green neighbourhood for Rugeley — but what should it be called? We want to hear your ideas.

"Did the area used to be called something? Is there a local person we should celebrate? What about a forgotten story? No idea too daft, share your name ideas online alongside a bit about why you think they’re good and where they’ve come from."

People have until October 7 to have their say and they can submit their suggestions as many times as they like. Visit rugeleypower.com/the-chance-to-name-a-part-of-rugeley/
