Birmingham Ahead of Other Regional Cities for Development

Birmingham Library

Birmingham is undergoing a Renaissance. Chosen to host the Commonwealth Games in 2022, and with the arrival of HS2 getting ever closer, the city is seeing unprecedented amounts of development and regeneration.

The Government too has invested in the city, providing hubs for 5,000 civil servants. Another Department of Transport hub is also likely to be added soon.

According to EG Radius, Birmingham is racing ahead with its development activity for regional cities. Since the beginning of 2016, Birmingham has seen 688 applications for new commercial projects (the largest for a regional city). There have also been 264 applications for residential schemes, second only to Manchester with 316.

No other UK regional city surpassed its 12,200 new units that came through in planning applications during the pandemic in 2020. And it would seem that Birmingham is well placed to keep the momentum going post pandemic, as many of these proposals start to come to life with construction. Cranes pepper the skyline and there is a feeling of optimism that surrounds the city.
