Have your say at a Portersfield consultation session

Residents and businesses are invited to share their views on the Portersfield regeneration project in Dudley town centre at a series of in-person and virtual consultation sessions this month.

The Portersfield site, which is located on the grounds of the former Cavendish House building near Dudley bus station, could benefit from a multi-million-pound private investment.

Plans could include a significant housing development and improved walking and cycling routes. Dudley Council is hosting three opportunities for people to have their say in the next seven days, starting with a drop-in session at Dudley Library on Saturday from 10am to 2pm.

There will also be an in-person session at Dudley Town Hall on Monday evening from 6pm to 8pm and a virtual session on Tuesday from 6.30pm to 7.30pm. Places can be booked on the sessions by email. Councillor Patrick Harley, leader of Dudley Council, said:

"Dudley Council is committed to driving investment and economic regeneration for our town centres.

"The regeneration of this brownfield site in Dudley town centre could create hundreds of homes, provide exciting new leisure opportunities, and create up to 500 jobs to support the local economy.

"We’re keen to hear people’s views on these plans and I encourage residents to come along and have their say at one of our drop-in consultation sessions."

The Portersfield consultation is running until Wednesday 20 September and can be completed via the Regenerating Dudley website. More information about the regeneration proposals for the project is also available on the website in a range of formats, including easy read, large print and audio versions. The proposals are also available to read in print at Dudley Library.
