Area Action Plans (AAPs)

There are 3 Area Action Plans being prepared in Wolverhampton for parts of the city that will be subject to significant change up to 2026.

The Area Action Plans will guide the transformation of these areas and provide detailed policies and proposals to deliver the Black Country Core Strategy at a local level. The area action plans will, when adopted, form part of the Development Plan for Wolverhampton, and will replace some allocations and policies in the Unitary Development Plan.

City Centre Area Action Plan

The AAP was adopted on 21 September 2016. The adopted AAP, adoption statement and sustainability appraisal adoption report are available for viewing:

Bilston Corridor Area Action Plan including Bilston Neighbourhood Plan

The Bilston Corridor extends from the edge of Wolverhampton city centre in the north, to Loxdale industrial area in the south. It includes Bilston Town Centre and parts of East Park, Ettingshall, Monmore Green, Bilston, Ladymoor, Loxdale and Bradley.

A neighbourhood plan-type approach has been taken to preparing the Bilston part of the Bilston Corridor AAP area. This means that the policies and proposals for Bilston have been developed by a Neighbourhood Plan-type group, including community and business representatives, supported by the council. However, no part of this document is a Neighbourhood Plan as set out in the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012.

The AAP was adopted 17 September, 2014. The adopted AAP, adoption statement and sustainability appraisal adoption report are available for viewing:

No legal challenges were made to adoption of the AAP during the six week period following adoption.
