Living and working in Dudley

Dudley borough

As the self proclaimed capital of the Black Country, Dudley’s rich industrial heritage was at the heart of the industrial revolution. The borough now is a combination of parks and open spaces and a mix of vibrant shops and restaurants.

The four main towns of the Dudley borough include Brierley Hill, home to the Merry Hill Centre, Halesowen, home to the historic Leasowes Park, Stourbridge, home to the Glass Quarter and Dudley, home to the famous 12th century castle. Each town contributes to the wider patchwork of the borough, bringing different qualities from across the borough and making Dudley the unique place that it is.

You can expect to be surprised by a prestigious zoo, seemingly endless canal networks, world famous geological sites and a nationally famous industrial museum.  We also enjoy wonderful green spaces including more than 35 local parks and historically significant nature reserves as well as easy access to the South Staffordshire / Worcestershire green belt.

The borough has a unique mix of diverse communities from wealthy suburbs through to some of the most deprived wards in the country, providing a challenging, but exciting, local government agenda.
