Plans move forward for Black Country Living Museum expansion
Ambitious plans to expand the Black Country Living Museum with a 1940s to 60s village have moved forward with the submission of a planning application.
The museum is seeking to install new buildings, structures, a tramway extension and an access road as part of the project.
The Tipton Road-based attraction wants to have a new period of history that visitors can enjoy.
Dudley Council has received the planning application and it will now go before bosses who will make a decision whether to approve them or not.
The move was welcomed by ward councillor Alan Finch, who said: "I welcome this 100 per cent.
"It is a fantastic project. The Black Country Living Museum is the hub of Dudley, so anything that will improve it is much welcomed."
