A number of sites within Norton, Pedmore and Cradley have been put forward as part of the ‘call for sites‘ which is part of the Black Country Plan (formerly known as the Black Country Core Strategy). The Strategy is undergoing a review of development needs to take it up to 2036. As part of this development review, local landowners were asked to submit sites for potential future development.
