DUDLEY IS IN THE MIDST OF AN EXCITING NEW CHAPTER IN ITS HISTORY
Dudley town centre’s skyline is set to transform over the next couple of years with confirmation in December 2021 that the former Hippodrome building on Castle Hill will be demolished.
This paves the way for a £36million Higher Education complex at Castle Hill, supported by a successful £25million Towns Fund bid.
The complex will be situated next to the new Very Light Rail National Innovation Centre and recently opened Black Country and Marches Institute of Technology.
Extensive stakeholder and community engagement activities have been conducted as part of the development of the Towns Fund Bid.
