B - Sandwell

The impact of the Black Country Plan on existing Sandwell Local Plan Documents

The following Local Plan documents are currently in force in Sandwell:

BCCS         Black Country Core Strategy (2011)

SADDPD  Sandwell Site Allocation and Delivery DPD (2012)

WBAAP    West Bromwich Area Action Plan (2026)

TAAP         Tipton Area Action Plan (2008)

SAAP         Smethwick Area Action Plan (2008)

The Black Country Core Strategy will be wholly replaced by the Black Country Plan (BCP) upon adoption. At this point the BCP, saved parts of SADDPD and WBAAP will make up the Sandwell Local Plan. Some of the policies, supporting paragraphs and Policies Map designations of the Sandwell Local Plan will be replaced or otherwise amended when the BCP is adopted. Appendix B1 lists policies and supporting paragraphs of the Sandwell Local Plan which will be replaced upon adoption of the BCP. Appendix B2 below lists the resulting amendments to the Sandwell Policies Map. As the BCP does not allocate sites in the Strategic Centres, only certain policies, supporting paragraphs and designations within the WBAAP are affected by adoption of the BCP.

As part of this process, the Green Belt boundary has also been adjusted slightly in a small number of locations to address minor inconsistencies between the boundaries that were previously established and the physical situation that exists "on the ground".

The impact of the Black Country Plan on existing Wolverhampton Local Plan Documents and Neighbourhood Plans

The following Local Plan documents and Neighbourhood Plans are currently in force in Wolverhampton:

BCCS      Black Country Core Strategy (2011)

WUDP    Saved parts of the Wolverhampton Unitary Development Plan (2006)

BCAAP   Bilston Corridor Area Action Plan (2014)

SRCAAP Stafford Road Corridor Area Action Plan (2014)

CCAAP   Wolverhampton City Centre Area Action Plan (2016)

HNP        Heathfield Park Neighbourhood Plan (2014)

TNP         Tettenhall Neighbourhood Plan (2014)

The Black Country Core Strategy will be wholly replaced by the Black Country Plan (BCP) upon adoption. At this point the BCP, BCAAP, SRCAAP, CCAAP and saved parts of the WUDP will make up the Wolverhampton Local Plan. Some of the policies, supporting paragraphs and Policies Map designations of the Wolverhampton Local Plan will be replaced or otherwise amended when the Black Country Plan (BCP) is adopted. Tables 43 - 48 and the tables below list the resulting amendments to the Wolverhampton Policies Map. Appendix D2 lists policies and supporting paragraphs of the Wolverhampton Local Plan which will be replaced upon adoption of the BCP.

The CCAAP covers the Wolverhampton Strategic Centre (as defined in the BCP) and the Blakenhall & Graiseley and All Saints Quarters located to the south of the City Centre. As the BCP does not allocate sites in the Strategic Centres, only certain policies, supporting paragraphs and designations within the CCAAP are affected by adoption of the BCP.

Neighbourhood Plan policies and proposals cannot be replaced by a Local Plan document. However, for clarity, Appendix D3 lists allocations in the Heathfield Park Neighbourhood Plan, which have not been carried forward into the BCP. As the Neighbourhood Plan Forums for the HNP and TNP have now lapsed, the BCP is not required to set separate housing targets for the areas covered by these Neighbourhood Plans.
