URBED has been commissioned by Walsall Council and Walsall Housing Group to prepare a regeneration strategy for Darlaston. This 10-15 year vision will outline how Darlaston should change to create a more sustainable place to live and work. Key focus areas are

  • The revitalisation of the town centre
  • Attracting high quality industry
  • Investment in community uses
  • Provision of new housing
  • Improving green spaces
  • Improving the environment and design
  • Enhancing the historic character and heritage value
  • Improving access and connections
  • Improving education, training and skills development

As part of the work URBED will be consulting the local community on what change they would like to see in Darlaston.  Details provided below.

The study will be completed in January 2010.

URBED are supported by DTZ, SQW, JMP Consultants and Landscape Projects to provide advice on economic regeneration, property market, transport and landscape.
