This is an exciting time for Walsall Council. We adopted our Site Allocations Document along with the Area Action Plan for the town centre at the beginning of the year and we are now looking to expand on this work with a Town Centre Master Plan. This is taking forward new investment into Walsall and delivering a number of major development projects. In addition to securing new investment, the Council is also looking at new ways of working through our Proud programme which has led to new ICT provision and working arrangements to ensure the services the people and businesses of Walsall need are delivered as efficiently as possible by our busy and high performing team.
