Wedgwood china firm's £25m revamp plans unveiled

The company behind the pottery firms Wedgwood, Waterford and Royal Doulton is asking for views on a £25m revamp of its premises in Stoke-on-Trent.

In June, WWRD Holdings Ltd announced plans to upgrade its Barlaston complex.

The proposals include investing in manufacturing facilities creating more than 100 jobs.

Residents were earlier invited to an event at Wedgwood's Barlaston site, which kicks off a consultation lasting for five months.

A planning application is due to be submitted later in the year, the firm has said.

Plans for the estate include having an expanded visitor experience.
