Local resident update on Ductwork demolition

Residents near Rugeley Power Station had recently been informed of a scheduled use of explosives at the site to demolish a section of metal ductwork, due to take place at the end of April.

We inform local residents that this scheduled demolition will now be postponed due to a bird’s nest on the structure. We are working closely with and on the advice of our ecologist to establish a new date of demolition once the animals have naturally moved on which is expected in the coming weeks.

The ductwork is separate to, and is not expected to impact demolition of the four cooling towers which are scheduled for controlled collapse on 6th June.

ENGIE gets the green light for Power Station redevelopment

ENGIE, owner of the Rugeley Power Station site, has been granted outline planning permission from Cannock Chase District Council and Lichfield District Council, for the significant redevelopment of Rugeley Power Station.

After three years of extensive community engagement and planning, ENGIE will now progress plans to transform the former coal-fired Power Station site, which it owns, into a sustainable, mixed-use development of 2,300 new low carbon homes with a low carbon all through school. 

With outline planning now confirmed, ENGIE will be able to make headway with infrastructure and remediation work, while progressing the school model.
