Over £3.7 billion pounds is being ploughed into the City of Wolverhampton making it one of the best locations in the country to build your investment.
Businesses seeking employment land will find a wide range of development sites and premier business parks across the city which offer great investment opportunities in prime locations with unrivalled connectivity.
Plans to build 10,000 new homes by 2026 are well underway, thanks to major sites being brought forward for regeneration such as at Bilston Urban Village and Canalside Quarter, and to local and regional initiatives which are helping to accelerate the City’s housing development programme, bringing opportunities for investors and developers.
One of these initiatives is the development of a City Council owned Housing Development Company. The housing company will develop additional housing across several council owned sites in Wolverhampton with homes for market rent and sale, as well as affordable social housing for rent.
The development of a Housing Company, together with a range of sites being bought forward for new mixed tenure residential housing schemes, are bringing opportunities for developers, demolition companies, architectural services, builders, estate agents, mortgage advisers and supporting services.

Black Country Garden City
The plans to build 10,000 new homes in the City of Wolverhampton by 2026 will be boosted by delivery of the Black Country Garden City.
More than 45,000 new homes will be built in what will be one of Britain’s biggest ever brownfield site regenerations, covering more than 1,500 hectares across some 30 towns near to and within the City of Wolverhampton - helping to accelerate the city’s own housing delivery programme.
The Garden City concept, which puts quality housing and developing vibrant communities at its core, was commissioned by the Black Country LEP and provides an exciting opportunity for investors and developers to embrace the key principles as part of their proposals.
The key principles include creating walkable neighbourhoods, green streets, spaces and beautifully designed homes that are energy efficient and resilient; great connectivity by car, public transport, cycling and walking; mixed density, mixed use, mixed tenure neighbourhoods; key facilities (retail, community, cultural, education) and place-making opportunities; space for enterprise, the creative industries and chances for local people to get involved in managing their communities; and making the best use of heritage assets like the fantastic canal network.
