Dudley borough

not just any borough, this is Dudley borough

Once at the heart of the Industrial Revolution, Dudley borough consists of four main towns: Brierley Hill, Dudley, Halesowen and Stourbridge.  Each has a wealth of heritage, from Stourbridge’s Glass Quarter to Dudley’s 12th century castle, from Halesowen’s historic Leasowes Park to Brierley Hill’s modern retail delights.  The towns contribute their own different qualities to the borough making it a special and fascinating place.

The council has been praised for its work with diverse communities and works hard to strengthen them. 

Working with partner agencies is also very important to Dudley Council. If you join our 14,000 plus workforce you’ll find an ethos of partnership working with the common goal of making the borough a good, healthy and safe place to live, work and visit. 

If you’re new to the area then you’ll be impressed with what we have to offer.  Already rich in history the borough has a distinctive character with plans to make it even better for our 300,000 residents.  With investment planned, we aim to create a borough where people want to live and companies want to do business.

We are incredibly proud of our council and the borough it serves; it’s a unique and very special place.  We know that if you come and join us at the authority you’ll receive a warm welcome, work with some very loyal and committed colleagues and contribute positively to making life better for our residents, businesses and visitors.

You can also expect to be surprised by the magnificent landscaped parklands and the seemingly endless canal networks. Dudley borough is a great place for family fun, days out, weekend breaks, and it is a wonderful place to get out and explore the great outdoors.
