A new deal designed to bring in around £130million of investment into the Black Country, creating 5,800 new manufacturing jobs in the region, has today been agreed by Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg and Minister for Cities Greg Clark.
The City Deal will see brownfield - or old industrial - sites across the Black Country redeveloped over the next four years, and will also provide support for a total of 2,800 long-term unemployed people in the region to help them find a job.
