Sandwell's 2030 Vision
In 2030, Sandwell is a thriving, optimistic and resilient community.
It’s where we call home and where we’re proud to belong - where we choose to bring up our families, where we feel safe and cared for, enjoying good health, rewarding work, feeling connected and valued in our neighbourhoods and communities, confident in the future, and benefiting fully from a revitalised West Midlands.
Raising aspirations and resilience
Sandwell is a community where our families have high aspirations and where we pride ourselves on equality of opportunity and on our adaptability and resilience.
Young people to have skills for the future
Our workforce and young people are skilled and talented, geared up to respond to changing business needs and to win rewarding jobs in a growing economy.
Raising the quality of schools
Our children benefit from the best start in life and a high quality education throughout their school careers with outstanding support from their teachers and families.
Lowering crime and ASB
Our communities are built on mutual respect and taking care of each other, supported by all the agencies that ensure we feel safe and protected in our homes and local neighbourhoods.
Excellent public transport to the region and beyond
We have excellent and affordable public transport that connects us to all local centres and to jobs in Birmingham, Wolverhampton, the airport and the wider West Midlands.
Major new housing along transport routes and employment sites
We now have many new homes to meet a full range of housing needs in attractive neighbourhoods and close to key transport routes.
Create environments in the six towns where people choose to live
Our distinctive towns and neighbourhoods are successful centres of community life, leisure and entertainment where people increasingly choose to bring up their families.
National reputation for getting things done
Sandwell now has a national reputation for getting things done, where all local partners are focused on what really matters in people’s lives and communities.
