People urged to have their say on investment

Dudley Council is preparing to consult on its development brief for a substantial plot of brownfield land in Dudley town centre.

The former Portersfield site, which is located near the bus station with views of the town’s historic castle, is expected to attract a multi-million-pound private investment.

Forming a key part of the local authority’s economic regeneration plan, it is hoped the large site will provide significant space for brownfield housing development, delivering much needed residential properties in the town centre.

Details of how people can take part in the consultation will be confirmed in the coming weeks. Councillor Patrick Harley, leader of Dudley Council said:

“Following several high-level discussions with prospective investors, I am pleased to confirm that we will be consulting over exciting proposals for the Portersfield site this spring.

“The regeneration of this Dudley town centre site will create hundreds of homes, provide exciting new leisure opportunities, and could 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.”
