Wednesbury Town Centre Masterplan Consultation

Closed 11 Jun 2024

Opened 7 May 2024


The draft Wednesbury Town Centre Masterplan consultation provides a significant opportunity for the community to actively participate in the planning and development at the heart of the town. By sharing their ideas, aspirations, and concerns, residents will play a crucial role in creating a vibrant, inclusive, and sustainable town centre for generations to come. 

What is a Masterplan?

A masterplan is a document that guides how places will change over period of time and helps with decision-making about how that will happen.

We want to ensure that Wednesbury Town Centre town centre thrives, grows and is ready to meet the challenges faced by climate, economic and behavioural changes in the future.

Having a masterplan is a useful tool that will help access funding for improvements and regeneration in the town from the UK government and elsewhere.   

How has the draft masterplan been developed?

The draft masterplan has been shaped by gathering input from previous engagement and consultation events, as well as considering insights from assessment of local needs and future potential. It is important to note that all projects identified in the draft masterplan are indicative, and will be subject to feasibility testing and possible change.

Who funded the masterplan?

The masterplan is part of a wider range of Wednesbury Levelling Up Parternship projects which will help Sandwell Council deliver much-needed new homes, help tackle crime and antisocial behaviour, improve green spaces and Wednesbury town centre, and expand the Millennium Centre so that more can be done to give people the skills they need to secure better jobs. 

Public consultation events

Saturday's consultation event (1 June) at Morrison's is no longer going ahead to ensure the council complies with the pre-election period ahead of the upcoming election on July 4th but you can still complete our online consultation survey before Tuesday 11 June.
