Black County Core Strategy

Call for Sites

We have recently updated our Call for Sites map following a request for further submissions held between 9th July – 20th August 2020. 

You can view all the site submissions on the  map using the following link  Black Country Interactive Site Map (   

A list of all the sites (including new sites and any withdrawn sites) can viewed in the summary document at the bottom of this page. 

What happens next?

Officers from each of the Black Country authorities have been undertaking assessments of all the sites. This will be an ongoing process taking us into mid 2021.
We will be contacting site promoters individually where we require any additional information – it is therefore important that you provide up to date contact details for any site submission. 

It is important to note that none of the sites that have been submitted have been formally allocated and not all sites put forward in the call for sites will be found to be either suitable, available or achievable for future development.    

We will publish our findings when we produce our Draft Black Country Plan, which will be the subject of a comprehensive eight-week public consultation in the summer of 2021. This will be an opportunity for members of the public and other stakeholders to provide their comments on draft policies and proposed land allocations.

Please see the Call for Sites Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) below for more information.
