There’s been loads of buzz since my article last weekend about the new development Walsall Housing Group are considering putting forward for the derelict wasteland that was once Silver Court Gardens in Brownhills.
The social landlord are consulting on the phased construction of 197 new homes in Brownhills, spanning from Silver Street to Lindon Drive, at the rear of Humphries House – and there will be a mobile demonstration and consultation bus parked up at Tesco in Brownhills today (Friday 2nd May 2014) from 10am to 4pm. Present will be experts who will be only too happy to discuss your views and answer your queries.
Over and over again I hear the call ‘Nobody consulted us!’ about things – this is our chance to have a say in the possible construction of nearly 200 homes to provide accommodation for everyone from young singletons, to families and senior citizens too.
Please, go find out what it’a all about. They’d love to see you.
I think this development can only be a good thing. Nearly 200 dwellings will bring new footfall to the town centre, repopulate a swathe of derelict wasteland and provide jobs and work for local construction and engineering firms – not to mention local cafes and shops. But that’s just my view – let WHG have yours.
If you can’t get to the event, don’t worry, you can use the feedback form on the Walsall Housing Group page too.
We are proposing to build a total of 197 homes in Silver Court, which will be split across three phases. This will include 45 one and two bedroom apartments and bungalows for general needs, and 62 one and two bedroom apartments for over 55s. There will also be 50 one to four bed houses for open market sale.
A consultation event will be held on Friday 2nd May, 10am to 4pm, at our mobile unit bus on Tesco Brownhills car park. Colleagues from our Regeneration, Development and Estate Management teams will be on hand to answer your questions.

thanks for this reminder. I went to have a good look at the display this morning. The whole development looks very ,very good and is easier to understand when all the panels are on display together. I was pleased to meet the architect and to talk with her . Perhaps not easily noticed here,.. there will be footpaths to link the new homes to the canalside….It will be a fine development, very well thought out, . Well done architect, team and WHG. The new Brownhills is shaping up well.
Whatever ends up being built has got to be better than what’s there at the moment, David Evans is normally spot on with most things so I’m happy to take his word for it.
