Have your say on plans for Cavendish House site

A consultation inviting people to have their say on plans for the derelict former Cavendish House site in Dudley town centre is now live.

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.

People can submit their views at regeneratingdudley.org.uk, with the consultation closing on Wednesday September 20. Councillor Patrick Harley, leader of the council, said:

“After a number of high-level discussions with prospective investors, we’re now in a position to move forward and ask our residents about plans for the Portersfield site.

“The regeneration of this Dudley town centre land could create hundreds of homes, provide exciting new leisure opportunities, and create up to 500 jobs supporting the local economy.

“Dudley Council is committed to driving investment and economic regeneration for our town centres, and we continue to focus our housing developments on the borough’s brownfield sites.

“The consultation into the plans is now live, and we would very much welcome the views of our residents.”
