City’s Top Officer Gives Reminder About Important Report!

Wolverhampton’s Managing Director Keith Ireland has reminded City Councillors that a blueprint has been created setting out development in the Black Country over the next 20 years to make it easier for people to get around.

All Councillors living in Dudley, Sandwell, Walsall and the City of Wolverhampton have been advised that you have until 8 September to have our say on how the Black Country Core Strategy should be updated.

The Black Country Core Strategy outlines how many homes are needed to be built, and how to plan for the number of extra jobs needed for a growing population.
