As the lead for the business element of the plan he will be putting together the detail of how the borough can attract new businesses and support existing ones to flourish.

Corin said, “The borough is already well on track to do this by 2030 with the DY5 Enterprise Zone in particular and its ability to draw in new firms from across the country”.

He continued: “We already have a diverse range of successful, nationally and internationally significant businesses, it’s how we build on that which will be critical to the success of the vision. We need to look at a range of things including a reliable, affordable and sustainable energy supply, a portfolio of quality industrial and commercial premises and ensuring we have attractive job and career prospects for the workforce. It is essential we all work together with a range of partners to make this happen.”

The borough already has some exciting prospects in the pipeline including the planned leisure and retail development in Trindle Road, Dudley, the proposed Midland Metro extension from Wednesbury to Brierley Hill which will bring more people to the borough, as well as the DY5 Enterprise Zone which continues to bring new businesses to the area.
