Wolverhampton has adopted its City Centre Area Action Plan (AAP) on 21st September which will guide the regeneration of the city centre up to 2026.
The area covered by the AAP includes the main core of the city centre within the ring road, and in addition also covers surrounding areas extending to the Fiveways Island to the north, the Canalside Quarter to the east, communities in Graiseley, Blakenhall and All Saints to the south, and Chapel Ash and West Park to the west.
The City Centre AAP identifies which areas could change through new development in the future and which areas, through protection and enhancement, could stay the same. The document will be of importance for new planning applications as it will provide guidance on the area and impact on the Council’s decision making process. It will therefore influence the provision of new jobs, transport and community facilities
