Housing and land use is a key WMCA priority. Our Investment Prospectus sets out up to £10bn in schemes that emphasise the West Midlands as the UK's new growth capital. We have also agreed a £350m Housing Deal with the government.
We have partnered together with Sandwell Council to deliver a new residential community in Friar Park, known as Friar Park Urban Village. This is the largest brownfield development sites in the West Midlands. We are seeking your views on the site, and its surrounding area, to help us make plans that respond to the local community’s hopes and aspirations.
With over £10bn of active investment opportunities, our Single Commissioning Framework (SCF) is a bespoke process for collaboration. The SCF gives private and public sector investors and developers the chance to unlock a series of Government funding.
