We want you to get involved to help shape projects and the future of Sandwell. Live and upcoming engagement activities will be posted here with details of their start and end date. If you have any questions, you can contact us here.
There are two live consultation activities: –
- Draft Sandwell Local Plan
- New cycle track in West Bromwich
Scroll down for more details.
Have your say on the draft Sandwell Local Plan
The Local Plan is a document that plans for the future development of our borough. It sets out how and where we expect to build the new homes we need up to 2041, and what land is required to accommodate new jobs.
This consultation gives you the chance to have your say on the sites that are proposed for development, and where development should or shouldn’t take place in Sandwell.
Sandwell Council has identified enough land to build more than 11,000 new homes by 2041. However, this isn’t enough to meet the expected housing needs of our growing population. Around 97% of these homes will be built on previously developed or brownfield land. The Plan protects the Green Belt and does not propose any new development within it.
The Plan also sets out how we will address challenges like dealing with climate change, protecting our natural environment, supporting our high streets, and encouraging sustainable travel. It includes policies that will help us meet our target to be a carbon neutral borough by 2041.
How you can get involved
It is really important that everyone who is interested gets involved in the consultation. Don’t miss your chance to have a say!
The consultation is now live and will end on Monday 18 December at 5pm.

Have your say on the proposals for the new cycle track in West Bromwich
We’re excited to share with you proposals to construct a cycle track between West Bromwich Town Centre and National Cycle Route 5 at Roebuck Lane and Beeches Road along High Street and Birmingham Road, West Bromwich. This follows the receipt of funding from the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities, called the Towns Fund.
The consultation takes place from Friday 24 November to Friday 15 December 2023.
