Consultation on Black Country Plan launches

Consultation on Black Country Plan launches

People can now have their say on major housing plans to help shape developments across Sandwell borough for the next two decades.

Last month Sandwell Council’s cabinet gave the go ahead for a consultation on the latest phase of the Black Country Plan.

The draft plan outlines potential future developments across the Black Country and is now being consulted on by the four Black Country councils – Dudley, Sandwell, Walsall and Wolverhampton.
The plan aims to identify land for housing and employment purposes across the Black Country whilst continuing to protect green belt land from development.

The government projects that the Black Country will need just over 76,000 new homes over the next 20 years. To support this growth, it also needs 560 hectares of land to accommodate new jobs by 2039. This is equivalent to 835 football fields.

The consultation gives people the chance to have their say on the proposed sites for development and where they think new development should be in the Black Country.

The consultation runs from Monday 16 August until Monday 11 October, 2021. Find out more and complete the survey at
