Pursuing inclusive economic growth is a key corporate priority for Walsall Council.
Walsall has an established reputation of working with investors, developers and land owners to support regeneration and economic development through open and innovative approaches to delivery and investment.
Over the last 5-10years Walsall has benefited from significant investment, both in the Town Centre and across the Borough, which has delivered high-quality commercial, industrial and residential development – with regeneration schemes worth over £415 million delivered in the Town Centre alone.
Seeking to build on this success, Walsall continues to offer a range of new development and investment opportunities. We are committed to working with land owners, investors and businesses, who share our vision to grow a thriving and vibrant Walsall, to bring these exciting propositions to life.
We are committed to supporting the delivery of development and investment opportunities in Walsall, and recognise the particular challenges of developing in some parts of the Borough due to the legacy of historic uses and associated costs/values.
As a progressive and proactive partner we have a proven track record of innovative delivery and are keen to work closely with the private sector to unlock sites through a range of measures where required, including:
• site assembly
• partnership working/structures
• risk sharing
• public sector funding
• strategic delivery assistance
To support our ambition that enterprise and economic growth flourishes, various funding streams are available through our partners at the West Midlands Combined Authority (WMCA) and Black Country Local Enterprise Partnership (BC LEP) to address access to finance and viability barriers to enable development through loan or grant support.
Whether you require funding to support viability, infrastructure, remediation or site investigation and survey works, further details on development funding options and how to apply are available from Black Country LEP and Finance Birmingham.
