Over the past few months, Sandwell Council has been doing all it can to manage the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic and maintain critical services that help to protect and support citizens.
We understand that it has been a difficult time for everyone and want to hear from you about the impact that COVID-19 and the lockdown measures have had on your health and wellbeing. Whether you're an individual, family, student, retired or newly arrived in the area, your opinion counts. We are keen to hear from people of all ages and in every community across Sandwell.

Statutory consultations go on from time to time. These range from proposed road closures to changes in licensing laws.
Community Infrastructure Levy
As part of the council's commitment to the voluntary and community sector, and to help ensure the council responds positively to good ideas coming from residents, local community and voluntary organisation’s, Sandwell Council can now offer Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) grants to Community groups across Sandwell.
Any funding application received for CIL requires a public consultation for a period of 14 days before a decision can be made. Details of current projects applying for funding and how to comment on the proposals can be accessed here.
