We want to know your views on Dudley's Draft Local Plan and proposed site allocations for the borough. The council is asking for your opinions on policies used to help determine planning applications and also on where new development sites for housing and employment could be built up to the year 2041. The consultation is now live and will close at 5pm on 22 December 2023.
