- On Tuesday, the Strategic Executive Board (SEB) visited Canalside on foot to see first-hand how plans are shaping up for the redevelopment of the area which is a key element of the £868 million being invested into the city centre. It was a really positive experience and an afternoon well spent in the company of colleagues to learn more about the ambitious plans for the area.We visited a former industrial site based at Lower Horseley Fields, which currently contains contaminated land. The City of Wolverhampton Council is working with a private company, Dunton Environmental, to decontaminate the land so it can be developed to build new homes – A great company for us to partner with.
The former Crane Foundry on Bailey Street has also been acquired for regeneration, by the Canal and River Trust. We will be working closely with the Trust to ensure proposals are in keeping with our own strategy for Canalside and the Trust’s aspiration for waterside development.
