This study, carried out between 1989 and 1992, was commissioned by the Department of the Environment and funded jointly by the Department and the British Geological Survey. Its principal aim was to produce a synthesis of geological information relevant to the planning of land-use and development in that part of the West Midlands conurbation known as the ‘Black Country’. This report is aimed at those involved in planning and development. The results are presented in a style which, it is hoped, will meet the needs of both those with and without previous geological knowledge. Much of the information is provided on a series of ten thematic maps, each of which concentrates on a specific aspect of the geology relevant to the use of land. In addition to the information contained in the report, sources of other more detailed data are indicated.
