We have a duty to involve our customers in decisions that affect them and the area they live, work or study in.
As well as local people and service users, our customers include local businesses, voluntary groups and visitors to 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.
