The funding aims to boost the delivery of new housing by giving grants to landowners with sites suitable for development within the Bloxwich Town Deal area.

Walsall Council has funding of up to £2million available to be distributed to successful applicants. Suitable proposals include existing derelict sites, the re-purposing of garage sites, the expansion of existing part developed sites and adapting existing housing blocks to create new or additional homes.

“ This is a great opportunity for landowners and I hope to see lots of applications for funding. Derelict sites and disused pieces of land can be unsightly and this fund will help landowners and developers to maximise opportunities to create much needed housing in Bloxwich “

Funding can be applied for via the council’s online portal.  Applicants will be able to view and complete Expressions of Interest for their proposals and successful applicants will then be supported to progress these applications. The deadline for expressions of interest is Monday 15 April 2024.


Notes to editors

Walsall is a Borough undergoing real transformation, creating a wealth of opportunity. There is a shared ambition to deliver well connected, attractive places where people are proud to live and work and where businesses want to locate; where there is a strong mix of housing for all our residents, where our communities are well served and all of our residents have the best life chances.

The overall Construction Skills programme outcome targets are as follows:

  • Deliver 51 new housing units
