Black County Core Strategy

Latest News

The Black Country Authorities of Dudley, Sandwell, Walsall and Wolverhampton are seeking your views on an important Plan that will shape the future of the Black Country.

The public consultation on Additional Draft Black Country Plan (Regulation 18) - Walsall sites only - took place between 11 July to 5 September 2022. This consultation is now closed.

The Black Country Plan is a joint Local Plan prepared by the four Black Country Authorities. The Plan will direct where new housing and employment development will be located in the Black Country up to 2039.

This additional consultation follows the Draft Plan consultation, which was concluded in October 2021. Following a review of the representations there are three more potentially suitable housing sites in Walsall, which require consideration and should follow the same consultation process as the other sites we consulted on last year.
