Projects: Wednesbury Town Centre Improvements
Start: November 2023
Delivery: March 2025
This project will help to keep the Town thriving through improving the attractiveness and safety of Wednesbury town centre. The project builds on the improvements already made through the Wednesbury High Street Heritage Action Zone which included improvements to Market Place.
This means more benches that are more comfortable, more bins to minimise littering and more trees and planting. The proposals also include brighter and better-quality paving and improved lighting.
The project will also undertake a detailed review of the Town Centre to consider future opportunities for the Town and derelict sites. This is referred to as a masterplan.
From 29 January until 11 March, everyone is invited to have their say on the plans. People can complete an online survey via the Consultation Hub or drop into Wednesbury Library or the following public engagement events where they can see the plans and discuss them with the officers working on the project. These will be held on:
Tuesday 13 February, 9am to 12pm – Union Street (near the bus station)
Saturday 17 February, 9am to 12pm – Morrison’s Supermarket
A second consultation will take place later in 2024 to focus on the Wednesbury Town Centre Masterplan.
