About the programme

The Promotion of Construction Skills through Regeneration (CStR) programme is funded through the Government’s Towns Fund. It's part of the Bloxwich Town Deal programme.

It aims to improve the quality and number of available homes in Bloxwich by:

  • bringing derelict sites back into use for housing
  • improving existing properties that need structural or environmental improvements
  • adapting existing housing blocks or utilising garage sites to create new / additional homes
  • implementing measures that reduce carbon consumption and energy costs
  • creating learning opportunities, jobs and apprenticeships for local* residents

The programme also aims to keep the Walsall pound local by:

  • engaging local* companies as part of the supply chain
  • employing local* people
  • buying local* goods and services

*Local - includes three priority areas:

  1. Bloxwich Town Deal area
  2. Walsall Town Deal area
  3. The Borough of Walsall

We're committed to promoting a Sustainable Procurement Policy that supports the local economy.
