Black Country Brownfield Land Study, West Midlands

Evidence Base

Client: West Midlands Combined Authority

Black Country Plan

Report to Identify Housing Development Potential
CCL was commissioned by the West Midlands Combined Authority to prepare an independent assessment of the brownfield land capacity for housing in the Black Country.

The Final Report was submitted by WMCA to the Black Country local authorities to inform the preparation of the subsequent stages of the Black Country Plan.

The principal objective of the study was to identify whether there was any additional brownfield land available and to quantify the sources of any additional capacity for housing development. It also considered, at a strategic level, what additional steps might be needed to bring forward any such development opportunities. The study examined the potential to increase densities, particularly in town centres and growth corridors in the Black Country area.
