A deconcentrated power plant has been bought by a regeneration company with large plans for redevelopment.

Harworth Group proposes to transform the former Ironbridge power station in Shropshire into a mixed development of residential and commercial buildings.

It is the latest regeneration project for the company that owns and manages 21,000 hectares of land at 136 locations in the north and the Midlands.

Recent projects include the transformation of the Orgreave Colliery into an advanced production center where large companies such as Rolls-Royce, McLaren and Boeing operate.

The Ironbridge plant, once operated by Eon UK, used coal instead to produce electricity, but was converted to use biomass fuel. It stopped generating electricity in 2015.

Harworth bought the 350-hectare site of Uniper in June and is responsible for demolition and redevelopment plans.
