Birmingham will be a city of inclusive growth where the opportunities and benefits of progress and investment are felt by all. We will focus on four key priorities – children, housing, jobs and skills and health – because we believe these represent the areas of greatest opportunity and challenge for all of us.
And underpinning these priorities is a commitment to delivering inclusive growth.
Birmingham and the wider region have entered a golden decade, a period that will culminate in the arrival of High Speed Two in 2026. The benefits of economic growth must be felt right across our city and in all our communities.
The city council is just one player in achieving these priorities. We want to strengthen our connections with partners and citizens, with businesses and government. Alongside this plan sits a much broader conversation with
partners across the city to develop a shared longer-term vision for the city of Birmingham.
Birmingham is a place of great diversity and we will continue to build a city that benefits all of our communities. We want to celebrate our neighbourhoods and create spaces that benefit everyone. A great city to grown up in and to grow old in; a city of lifelong learning; a city with decent housing for all which provides the foundation for raising families and building careers. A city where people are healthier and communities grow stronger.
Together we can rise to the challenges and make the most of our opportunities.
