The proposals are designed to improve the attractiveness and safety of Wednesbury town centre’s public spaces between Wednesbury Great Western Street tram stop, Wednesbury Bus Station and Union Street.
As part of the plans, the project will positively revitalise the town centre by providing more places to sit, rest and socialise. 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 along Great Western Street, Union Street, Victoria Street, outside Morrisons, the Museum and Art Gallery and in the proposed ‘Ethelfleda Square’ outside the bus station.
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
This consultation is part of the Levelling Up Partnership which is a unique partnership between Government and Sandwell Council.
The Consultation will run from 29 January 2024 until 11 March 2024. You can view the Consultation here.
