West Bromwich regeneration - an introduction

West Bromwich town centre is currently undergoing one of the largest regeneration programmes taking place anywhere in the United Kingdom.

Hundreds of millions of pounds is being invested in a number of schemes that will provide the residents of West Bromwich and Sandwell with the state of the art services and excellent opportunities they deserve.

Between 2011 and 2013 West Bromwich has seen the opening of a new Central College Campus, the BT building at the new office development Providence Place, a revamped High Street, and the New Square retail and leisure complex. The physical and economic regeneration of West Bromwich is now visibly taking shape, but there is more to come.

2014 will see the opening of the leisure pool and fitness centre, improved connections between the bus/metro station and the town centre, more new homes on the Lyng, Greets Green and Urban 180, and much more.

The West Bromwich regeneration programme will see;

  • A wider retail offer
  • New leisure facilities
  • Quality housing
  • Further education opportunities
  • Improved green spaces
  • Job opportunities
  • Investment opportunities from outside Sandwell
  • Better transport and pedestrian links
  • A safer place to live

Despite the difficult economic environment, Sandwell Council is committed to the regeneration of West Bromwich town centre. Such projects will inevitably result in some disruptions for visitors and workers in West Bromwich, however every effort is being made to ensure these are kept to a minimum.
