The purpose of the High Street Project is to regenerate the riverside area between the High Street and the Washlands, running from the Market Place up to the Burton Bridge, creating new and exciting ways for people to enjoy this area and looking to improve the linkages between the riverside and the town centre.

Following the closure of the National Brewery Centre, the Council has been working with its Heritage Working Group to develop a vision for creating a new National Museum of Brewery alongside the proposed Burton upon Trent Heritage Centre, ahead of developing a more detailed business case proposal for the project.

The Vision Statement was issued on 1st December 2022 and can be downloaded.

More information on the next steps for the High Street Museum Project and the temporary National Archive Centre will be published in due course.
