Dudley Council the historic capital of the Black Country
Dudley Skyline

There are essentially two ways that community engagement can come about:

  • by the council requesting your (the public’s) involvement and assistance on a particular subject or issue, or

  • by you (the public) requesting that the council give consideration to or look into particular issues.

The council considers both approaches to beginning community engagement to be equally important. 

At any one time the Council is involved with a number of community engagement activities concerning a range of issues throughout the borough. Your involvement is important to the Council as we want to hear your views and opinions so that we can best respond to them in the services we provide.

Who to contact for further advice and assistance ?

If you wish to start engagement with the council, The council welcome your views and opinions and the opportunity to respond to them. If you have an issue or concern you would like to raise with the council there are a number of people and organisations that can help you.
