Sandwell Council HouseDo you currently use the services of the One Stop Shop?

Sandwell Metropolitan Borough Council is currently working to set up a pilot project to extend the opening hours of the One Stop Shop at the Oldbury Council House.

The normal opening hours are Monday to Thursday 8am-5:30pm and Friday 8am-5pm. The pilot opening hours will be late night on Wednesday to 7pm and Saturday morning 10am-1pm.
