1. Wolverhampton Southside

Wolverhampton Southside is an exciting 2.5 hectare mixed use site opportunity. It is strategically located between Wolverhampton Westside and the city centre retail core.
The City of Wolverhampton Council owns a significant portfolio of land in this area, ready-to-go for quick development. Whilst there’s no fixed view of exactly what type of development we wish to see here, it must be quality and it must complement the existing city-centre. We plan to use some of this land creatively including new green spaces and a softened environment to enhance private sector-led development.

  • Adjacent to £120 million integrated transport hub
  • Majority of sites owned by canalside partners
  • Attractive city centre living proposition for over 600 new homes

2. Wolverhampton Canalside

Wolverhampton Canalside offers a unique opportunity for a distinct and regionally important development.

The 47 hectare site is owned by four key partners working together to regenerate the area: Canal and River Trust, City of Wolverhampton Council, Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) and Network Rail. Partners are delighted to announce the launch of the Wolverhampton Canalside Delivery Partnership to bring forward this exciting opportunity.

The site is minutes away from the city centre and Interchange and there are no complex compulsory purchase orders (CPOs) to perform. Early ideas for the site include an anchor leisure scheme clustered around existing historic buildings which could include destination restaurants and a micro-brewery. There's also the potential for residential apartments, creative workspaces and a city centre marina development. LED and mood lighting around the canals and tunnels are also being progressed.

We're open to ideas so please come and talk to us.
