Plans for £50m Wolverhampton Westside development approved
Part of the Wolverhampton city centre will be transformed after the multi-million Westside development was signed off by council leaders.
The delayed scheme, which covers land between Penn Road Island and Salop Street, was given final approval by the city council's cabinet last night.
The major development will include a cinema, trampolining, 10-pin bowling, restaurants, adventure golf and a giant car park. Economy boss Councillor John Reynolds said Westside would bring huge investment into Wolverhampton and "breathe new life into our city centre".

The project was given a kick-start after developers secured £50 million in new funding and work is expected to begin later this year. It will be the latest change for the city centre, coming after redevelopment work begun at the train station.
