Sustainable development is about meeting the diverse needs of everyone (who lives, works and visits) in the Borough both now and in the future, and providing opportunity of choice.

This will be achieved by: promoting social cohesion and a fair society; strengthening economic prosperity; protecting and improving the Borough’s natural environment; and managing natural (and other) resources sensibly.

What is the council doing to reduce impact on the environment?

Energy Efficiency studies have also been carried out in certain Council buildings which has resulted in energy savings. The Council is also researching the use of alternative fuels and has purchased two vehicles which operate on natural gas.

Through working with its many partners, the council is committed to contributing to the economic vitality of the borough through Land Use/Economic Development.

Air Quality and Pollution Control

The Council is one of the seven metropolitan authorities which has been selected by the government to trial a plan for improving air quality across the borough. This will consider the major contributors to pollution such as road transport, energy generation, industrial processes and domestic sources. Dudley Council has always taken a positive approach to improving air quality and the entire borough is now smoke controlled.
