Regenerating Brierley Hill

Tuesday 25th August 2020

Brierley Hill has massive potential and work is underway to regenerate it and turn it into a successful and thriving area. The Metro extension will help bring people to the area, and our bid has recently been submitted for funding from the government’s Future High Streets Fund. It’s a community effort - and here’s an update with Mayor Andy Street, Dudley Councillor Patrick Harley and Tim Sunter from the Brierley Hill Community Forum.
