Take the 360° TourBilston Urban Village
One of the city’s key regeneration areas prime for residential development is Bilston, an area with strong industrial history and longstanding communities south east of Wolverhampton City Centre.
Work is now well underway on creating around 500 homes at Bilston Urban Village. The City Council, the Homes and Communities Agency and the Black Country Local Enterprise Partnership have invested in the 100-acre site to prepare it for development and over the next few years it will be transformed to create a new community complete with shops and business premises.
Around £45 million has already been invested in a new leisure centre and secondary school, in addition to the creation of a commercial development plot fronting the Black Country Route and the direct pedestrian linkage of the site with the town centre.
Further significant investment has been made in the improvement and creation of new public open spaces and a network of paths and cycle routes across the site.
Proposals are in place to bring a further 10 acres forward for development for new employment uses along with a number of other sites in the town centre.
Bilston Centre benefits from direct access to Junction 10 of the M6 via The Black Country Route and the Midland Metro provides fast, frequent access to both Birmingham and Wolverhampton City Centre.
