RESIDENTS can find out more about the consultation on plans for the derelict former Cavendish House site in Dudley at drop-in information sessions starting next week.

Proposals for the former Portersfield site are on display in Dudley Library as part of a consultation, launched last month, and information sessions have been arranged for people to drop-in, find out more and get involved.

The site, near the bus station, could be transformed with a significant housing development and improved walking and cycling facilities as part of a multi-million investment.

Councillor Patrick Harley, leader of Dudley Council, said: "The regeneration of this Dudley town centre brownfield site could create hundreds of homes, provide exciting new leisure opportunities and create up to 500 jobs supporting the local economy.

"We want to hear people’s views on these plans and I’d encourage residents to come along to one of our drop-in events or sign up to a virtual on-line information session to find out more and get involved."
