Have your say on the Wolverhampton Strategy

Wolverhampton Partnership’s “Big City Tour” is visiting 14 areas across the city over the next few weeks to introduce the Wolverhampton Strategy, which aims to bring economic growth to the city and create jobs for local people.

Members of the Partnership want to hear views and ideas from residents, businesses and voluntary organisations about how the Strategy’s ambitions to bring “prosperity for all’ can become a reality.

Wolverhampton Partnership’s Chair Jon Crockett said: “…the focus is on jobs, but it’s also about ensuring residents have opportunities to gain new skills, live healthier lives and live in crime-free neighbourhoods. In short, people want a city they enjoy living and working in and that they can be proud of.”

He added: “The city knows what it wants. We are working hard together to tackle the challenges we face as a city and to realise our ambitions within the resources available. We’re really keen that people come along to the tour when it is near to them to hear about the opportunities are being created and to share with us their thoughts about the strategy.”

Visit the tour in Wednesfield

The Big City Tour will be stopping off in Wednesfield Market between 10am and 3pm on 29th June.

It will also be at the City Show in West Park on Saturday and Sunday, July 7 and 8, from 10am-5pm.

Co-founder of WV11.co.uk. I live in Wednesfield and am involved in various community groups and associations. I build websites and develop digital marketing strategies for a living. When not writing for WV11 or attending meetings I play drums in my band Arbor Lights. I think Wednesfield is a great place, with a great sense of community and it isn't given the credit it deserves. Hopefully WV11.co.uk goes some way to fixing this!
