The Dudley Deal is an informal agreement between the council and anyone who lives, works or runs a business in the borough.

There are three distinct strands:

  • The Business Deal - about growing the economy
  • The Community Deal - about further supporting stronger communities
  • The Green Deal - focusing on a cleaner, greener borough

Each of the strands sets out what the council will commit to and also how residents, businesses and community groups can play their part too.

These pledges will continue to be developed in partnership with the community.
