Introducing Business Friendly Planning

The Black Country Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) which acts as a forum between business and local government has initiated a project to help guide businesses through the planning and development process in the Black Country. Walsall Council fully endorses this project and has been leading on the project with the other Local Planning Authorities in the Black Country.

Employment, Training and Local Suppliers

Walsall Council’s Corporate Plan sets out the key priority as ‘Supporting Business to Thrive and Supporting Local People into Work’. Our Strategic Regeneration team achieve this through encouraging employment and training for local residents and by promoting our local supply chain through all public and private investment in Walsall and the wider area. The team can help to identify suitable local candidates for your project or development, offer free training as well as recommending local consultants, suppliers or contractors to an agreed specification in order to promote local jobs, reduce carbon emissions and congestion, and support corporate social responsibility. The attached flyer sets out the additional support that is available to you. For more information please contact the Walsall Works Team on 01922 654353. Email us at or visit our website
