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.
