Sandwell Borough

About us

Sandwell is a large, diverse, metropolitan borough and offers exciting opportunities for all.

Situated at the very heart of the West Midlands, we are the third largest metropolitan borough with six main towns; Oldbury, Rowley Regis, Smethwick, Tipton, Wednesbury and West Bromwich.

Sandwell Council is the largest employer in the borough and provides a comprehensive range of services to local people throughout their lives.

The borough has excellent access to the national motorway network and we are just 7 minutes by rail to Birmingham city centre. We also benefit from a mainline train station- Sandwell and Dudley and the Midland Metro.

The borough has 1,200 hectares of parks, playing fields and local green space and more than 30 miles of canals.
