Town centres nationwide are struggling. First with the rise of out of town retail parks and the internet. And now with the effects of COVID. West Bromwich is not immune to these pressures. So, I'll continue to work with our Mayor, Andy Street, to ensure redevelopment. So that we have a town centre that we're all proud of.
In October 2020, work began to pull down the eye-sore Bull Street car park with money granted to the town from the WMCA. This will become new affordable homes for local people. And the Government are investing £25 million into the town as part of the Stronger Town Fund.
