The Black Country Plan Consultation

The Black Country Plan Consultation

Have your say on the future of the Black Country's precious landscape - the Black Country Plan public consultation is open now.

The Black Country Plan will provide the framework for all development decisions in the four local authority areas of Dudley, Sandwell, Walsall and Wolverhampton for a 15 year period from 2024 to 2039. Large-scale land-use changes are expected to take place during its lifetime, and therefore the final Plan’s content will have a significant and permanent impact on the quality of the Black Country environment.

The consultation on the Draft Plan gives everyone the opportunity to influence the future of the Black Country. Whether you want the Plan to have stronger environmental policies or want to protect a local area of green space from development, now is the time to make yourself heard.

The consultation is open until Monday 11th October 2021.  We are currently preparing our response and will share this with our members and supporters once this has been submitted.  If you would like to be notified when our response has been published please sign-up to our e-newsletter.

Ahead of issuing our response, we've put together information and advice for how to make your own which can be found here.
