Help and advice on submitting your comments/representations (Plus extra copies of the Comments form) are available by contacting Dudley Planning in the following ways:

Telephone: 01384 814136
Email: blackcountryplan@dudley.gov.uk
Post: Black Country Plan, Planning and Regeneration, Dudley MBC, Council House, Priory Road, Dudley, DY1 1HL

Events: There are two virtual online Q&A sessions being organised by Dudley to be held on 7th and 8th September 2021. See this page for information on how to book, and send in your questions in advance.

As consultation events will be limited, due to Covid-19 restrictions, the Principal Planning Officer has announced that members of the public will be able to phone Dudley council and speak to a Planning officer to discuss the consultation, and hear how comments will be made. If necessary, planning will post a copy of the Draft Plan summary document to enable them to provide comments. Additionally, residents can book an appointment to meet with a Planning officer in person in one of the Covid-19 secure Council premises.


Local Campaign Groups:
Local residents have formed a number of Local Campaign Groups to raise awareness of the Consultation. Some of these have organised residents meetings and leafletting campaigns. If you can offer help, or would like some assistance with your comments, they can be contacted directly via the links on the Local Campaign Groups page.

Local Councillors:
Your local councillors may be holding public meetings or otherwise offering help or advice on your local sites. Contact them directly for information.
