Codsall Community Hub - Building for the future
Released on 11 September 2019
Pre-planning application public consultation now underway
As part of the pre-planning application process, a public consultation is underway from Wednesday 11 to Sunday 22 September 2019 for the Codsall Community Hub. This exciting proposal involves investment in the Council's headquarters situated on Wolverhampton Road and includes a major refurbishment of the Council Offices, a new build to the front of the building and increased car parking.

- See the proposed plans on display in the Council foyer
The Codsall Community Hub will see the introduction of a new library, refurbished canteen and coffee bar, GP surgery, NHS community outreach teams and a local policing team presence. In addition, space will be available for local businesses including retail and offices through the award-winning South Staffordshire Business Hub, which is already located at the Council Offices, creating an ideal environment for local business to grow.
Specialist teams from across the public, health, private and voluntary sectors will be co-located together in the Community Hub's modern, agile working and collaborative environment. As well as helping improve service integration for those supporting the district's most vulnerable residents, this will help reduce taxpayer spend by condensing multiple buildings into one.
The project is forecast to cost £8 million and rental income will offset costs enabling the project to be cost neutral to the taxpayer. Benefits to residents will include access to multiple services on one site set in a modern environment with good local and regional transport links. Investment in the Council Offices will also secure the building's long-term future, creating a Community Hub where residents and future generations can learn, work, access services, dine, shop and socialise.
