Quarry Bank is a traditional local shopping centre, situated close to Merry Hill and Saltwells Local Nature Reserve. The street scene is comprised of mainly pre-1929 buildings, many of which have been drastically altered by replacement with modern shop frontages.

Quarry Bank local centre has been identified as a priority in terms of regeneration. In October 2008 resources were secured to develop a regeneration strategy and Colin Buchanan Planning Consultants were appointed in November 2009 to undertake the work in consultation with local people.
The Quarry Bank Local Centre Regeneration Strategy was finally approved by the Council in January 2011.
