I am absolutely thrilled to welcome the newly formed Office for Place to Stoke-on-Trent. With a rich artistic history steeped in the potteries industry, our city has always stood as a beacon of creativity and craftsmanship, a living testament to beauty and innovation.
It is only fitting that a place so synonymous with creativity and design becomes the birthplace of an initiative aimed at enhancing the aesthetics of our built environment.
Having lobbied tirelessly for more government attention, I am delighted that our city will host this project that champions design, aesthetics, and the creation of beautiful, appealing environments.
This move by the Government signals their confidence in Stoke's potential and our ability to contribute to the nation's future.
