Black Country core strategy review charts directions for growth

Date: 14/7/2017

Planning magazine reports that the issues and options document for the Black Country core strategy review, published last week for consultation, highlights the challenge that the sub-region faces, setting out an objectively-assessed housing need of 78,190 homes up to 2036.

Craig Jordan, the Planning Officers Society's West Midlands convenor and head of economic growth at Lichfield District Council, said that the study is intended to define recommended strategic directions for growth, the scale of housing provision which could be accommodated and related delivery issues including infrastructure requirements.

The intention is that agreed outputs will inform local plan-making and also, together with other studies, assist in informing the development of a Greater Birmingham & Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership spatial plan, Jordan said.
