Will £50m leisure scheme help revive Wolverhampton?

Westside, Wolverhampton

City centre development secures funding.

The 140,000 sq ft scheme – which will include 25,000 sq ft of food and beverage outlets, a multi-screen cinema anchor, trampolining, 10-pin bowling, adventure golf and a 600-space car park – is due to be completed in 2021.

As well as providing Wolverhampton with a much-needed leisure offer, the scheme will also connect a long-isolated district between Penn Road Island and Salop Street to the city core. New pedestrian walkways will be created between Westside and Wolverhampton’s revamped main railway station and to other parts of the city. The aim is to stitch disparate areas together to create a more appealing and harmonious sense of place.
