Emma Reynolds, MP for Wolverhampton North East is urging local residents to have their say on the Black Country Core Strategy. Consultation is underway and runs until September 8 and this is a great opportunity for local residents to help shape the future development of the Black Country, to have their say on where they think new homes should be built and to offer up ideas for future land use.

Emma said, “I would encourage anyone who lives or works in the Black Country, particularly Wolverhampton, to make their views known on this vitally important consultation.”

The Core Strategy is a planning document which will decide where new development will be distributed, across the four authorities, from now until 2036.
