    Up to £20,000,000
  • Timeline

    Start: May 2024

  • Location
    Smethwick Town

In October 2023, Smethwick was named as one of 55 towns to receive £20million endowment style funding from Government over a 10 year period to invest in local people’s priorities.

To access the funding Sandwell will produce a Long-Term Plan for Smethwick based on local priorities, developed by a board of community representatives engaging with local people.

The Long-Term Plan is to comprise the 10-year vision for Smethwick and a 3-year investment plan, setting out how the funding will be allocated and spent, with Sandwell Council as the body ultimately accountable for the funding.

The funding is to be focused around three investment themes: –

  • Safety and Security
  • High Streets, Heritage and Regeneration
  • Transport and Connectivity 

The Long Term Plan is to be driven by local people and local priorities and as such public engagement and consultation will be required throughout the development of the plan. Further details on the programme, including details of engagement opportunities will be posted here and on the websites ‘Get Involved’ page.
