Sandwell Council and Job Centre Plus are working with a supermarket within the New Square development to set up a scheme where a third of jobs created will go to people who have been out of work for more than six months.

The development will provide modern shopping and leisure facilities for West Bromwich and generate £200m of investment for the town. The hope is that it will also develop an evening economy for the area and turn it into a visitor destination.
