Brandhall is a district of Oldbury in central England, in the south-west of Sandwell near the borders with Birmingham and Halesowen. The development of the area got underway during the 1930s with the construction of several hundred private houses along the Hagley Road and Wolverhampton Road, as well as several side roads leading off the main dual carriageways. However, most of Brandhall was developed in the 1950s and 1960s, when several thousand council houses, flats and bungalows were built by Oldbury Council. Some of the high-rise flats in Brandhall have recently been demolished and in their place housing associations have built new low rise homes. Brandhall is growing to be a more popular place and more facilities are being built, such as a local co-op and a doctors surgery.The development of housing agencys have grown and work has nearly been completed on some projects.
