Birmingham regeneration plans to be unveiled

Birmingham City Council will this weekend reveal 46 major development opportunities across the city in a bid to stimulate a wave of economic regeneration.

Area Investment Prospectuses identifying sites and schemes covering almost 300 ha of land will be issued for North-west, East, and South Birmingham at an International Convention Centre launch.

An initial round of AIPs was launched in October 2007, and significant progress has been made on 20 of those sites, generating more than £1 billion of investment in the city.
Cabinet Member for Regeneration Neville Summerfield said: “We were the UK’s first local authority to present a detailed package of key locations, identifying strategic long-term opportunities in the wider Birmingham area.
“We were determined to ensure that developers, investors, and other private sector organisations realised the significant scope for schemes outside the city core, where much development activity had been focused for the last 20 years.
“Now we have widened our strategy, so that elements such as neighbourhood employment plans and the skills agenda are included in the AIP concept.”
