Dudley MBC: Your Borough Your Home
Your Borough, Your Home is the local magazine with important information for Dudley Borough residents.
The new year heralded a new era for the borough as we opened the doors to our fantastic £18million leisure centre.
The Duncan Edwards Leisure Centre, named after the borough’s most famous sporting son, is the first leisure centre to be built in a generation.
The outstanding facilities are second-to-none and include a 25 metre, eight-lane swimming pool, sports hall, 100-station gym and fitness suite, and state-of-the- art immersive cycle suite – the first of its kind in the Black Country.
There’s also a wellness suite with power-assisted gym equipment, particularly beneficial for those living with long-term health conditions, with limited mobility or recovering from injury.
We’ve information on the new portal for adult social care, which will let residents take greater control of their life and choices. It will offer a secure way for residents, carers, partners and professionals to interact online and at a time to suit them.
For the green fingered among us, there are details on how you’ll be able to buy extra green waste collections from the autumn. While many authorities charge for the green waste service, we’re keeping the existing service free, but offering residents the opportunity to buy an additional six collections.
Preparations are also underway to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. A number of events are planned by the council to mark this historic milestone and we’re encouraging residents to get involved too.
As ever, thank you for your continued efforts during this pandemic. You can keep up to date with the latest government advice at www.dudley.gov.uk

Leader of Dudley Council
