Next Steps

Shortly after the end of this consultation a decision was made by the four Black Country authorities to stop progressing the Black Country Plan jointly . Each local authority will now focus on producing their own Local Plan.

The authorities will continue to co-operate with each other and with other key bodies on all cross boundary and strategic planning matters as they prepare their Local Plans.

Please note that all of the comments received during the Regulation 18 Additional Walsall only sites consultation in 2022 have been passed onto the relevant local authority to use, should they choose to do so, in shaping their individual local plans and policies. We have published all the comments made to date, but we will not be providing any response to individual ones.

Further public consultations on the separate local plans will also take place, dependent on the individual authorities' plan preparation schedule as set out in their Local Development Schemes (LDS). The Local Development Scheme is published on each authority's web site.
