Black Country EU Structural and Investment Funds Strategy Draft Consultation Document
Black Country EU Structural & Investment Funds Strategy

This Draft Strategy Consultation document provides the overall framework, rationale for interventions and set of investment areas for use of European funding (ERDF and ESF) in the Black Country over the period 2014-20. At this stage, Government are not asking us to provide a list of interventions that we would like to fund – only broad intervention areas.

This document has been produced based on detailed guidance from Government around eligible activity, strategic plans already agreed by Black Country partners, and with the input of a range of Black Country partners.

The aim of this consultation document is to ensure that the information is shared widely, giving all partners a chance to feed in, before the draft strategy is submitted.

If you would like to make any comments on the proposals, please email these back to Zoey West at Walsall Council at, or telephone Zoey on 01922 655998. These might include:

• Areas of the rationale for your intervention that you agree or disagree with
• Areas of intervention that you feel are a high priority, or are less of a priority.

The deadline for comments back is Monday 23rd September at 5pm.
