Stafford Chamber of Commerce to become an anchor-tenant of newly-refurbished Shire Hall

Stafford Chamber will be setting up a new base in Stafford after becoming an anchor-tenant of the newly -refurbished Shire Hall.

Shire Hall, situated just off Market Square in the centre of Stafford, is a Grade II listed building which will play host to around 20 businesses following its full refurbishment.

The building is set to become a thriving hub for local businesses, hosting a diverse range of companies ranging from start-ups to international traders.

Stafford Chamber of Commerce Manager Declan Riddell said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for the Chamber and we can’t wait to move to our new base at the heart of the county town.

“We will continue to offer our award-winning support to the local business community, whether it’s a fledgling start-up entrepreneur or long-established enterprise.

“Shire Hall is a jewel in the crown of Stafford landmarks and we’re very much looking forward to moving in.”

Described as “one of the finest public buildings in Stafford”, Shire Hall was constructed in 1798 and served as a courthouse and art gallery.

Plans to transform the building, which closed in mid-2017, were hailed as ‘fantastic’ by Boris Johnson at a Prime Minister’s Questions event earlier this month.

Building works are scheduled to be completed by mid-2022, with businesses moving in shortly afterwards.
