The Vision for Dudley Town Centre

Our vision statement is what Dudley Council and the community want to achieve through delivery of the Area Action Plan:

Dudley is a historic market town looking to the future. By 2026 it will be a town which serves the needs of its local population and which remains the strong focus for civic life, for town centre living, for shopping, tourism and heritage, leisure and education. This will be achieved by reshaping and reasserting its role within the Borough, drawing on its considerable assets, encouraging investment in opportunities and ensuring that Dudley becomes a place with a richer mix of town centre uses. The environmental and historic quality, green infrastructure, transport connectivity, accessibility and safety and security of all the town centre activities and assets will be enhanced. Street trees and urban planting will provide extensive benefits for healthy urban living in terms of improving air quality, cooling and water quality
