Planning permission for a brand new 30-bedroom lodge just off the Blackheath Lane Roundabout at Beacon Business Park in Stafford, has been granted by Stafford Borough Council.

The 0.57-acre site is a stone’s throw away from The Knot and Plough public house, which also belongs to the Marston’s group.

The lodge will provide affordable accommodation both for visitors to Beacon Business Park and the wider Staffordshire area.

As the UK’s leading independent brewing and pub retailing business, Marston’s PLC were looking to expand their presence in Staffordshire and Beacon Business Park was an obvious choice, with excellent links to both the M6 and the A518 Weston Road.   The hotel will be a welcome addition to the existing facilities at Beacon Business Park, which include a new Costa Coffee Drive Thru, due to open later in 2018, and The Knot and Plough public house. All are situated on Beacon Business Park’s newest 50-acre development zone.
