CONCERNS over housing proposals for the Old Quarter's Longlands site and Stourbridge's canal arm have prompted a community meeting next week.

Stourbridge Community Development Trust is hosting a meeting on Tuesday, October 23, from 7-9pm in the cellar bar at Katie Fitzgerald’s to discuss the possible formation of a Community Land Trust.

SCDT is exploring the possibility of a CLT being set up by residents due to worries over planned developments at the former Longlands School and the canal arm.

Guest speakers from Accord Housing Group, Birmingham University and the New Economic Foundation will be on hand on the evening.
