Drop-in sessions on plans for Cavendish House site

Residents can find out more about the consultation on plans for the derelict former Cavendish House site in Dudley at drop-in information sessions starting next week.

The former Portersfield site – located near the bus station, with views of the town’s historic castle – could be set to benefit from a multi-million-pound private investment.

Plans could include a significant housing development on the brownfield site, easing pressure on the green belt, as well as improving walking and cycling facilities.

Proposals are on display in Dudley Library as part of the consultation, launched last month, and information sessions have been arranged for people to drop-in, find out more and get involved.

They are at Dudley Library on Monday August 21 from 2 to 5pm and Saturday September 9 from 10am to 2pm and at Dudley Town Hall on Monday September 11 from 6 to 8pm.

Online sessions on Microsoft Teams are also taking place on Tuesday September 5 from 7.30 to 8.30am and Tuesday September 12 from 6.30 to 7.30pm.

Places for these online sessions need to be booked in advance. For details about the consultation and to take part, as well as to book onto an online information session.

The consultation closes on Wednesday September 20. Councillor Patrick Harley, leader of the council, said:

"Dudley Council is committed to driving investment and economic regeneration for our town centres. The regeneration of this Dudley town centre brownfield site could create hundreds of homes, provide exciting new leisure opportunities and create up to 500 jobs supporting the local economy.

"We want to hear people’s views on these plans and I’d encourage residents to come along to one of our drop-in events or sign up to a virtual on-line information session to find out more and get involved."
