Birmingham Consults on Central Birmingham Framework 2040

Birmingham City Council are currently consulting on the ‘Our Future City: Draft Central Birmingham Framework 2040’ until Thursday 17th August 2023. The Council have hailed the Framework as ‘a new 20-year vision and framework for the development of Central Birmingham to meet the economic, social, and environmental challenges of the 2020s and beyond’.

The Council considers the Framework to be ‘a bold and ambitious vision for the future of Central Birmingham. It builds upon the ‘Shaping Our City Together’ consultation in 2021, and the many conversations since which have all helped shape the plan’.

The Framework covers Central Birmingham, which has been grouped into five distinct areas:

  • City Heart: Bull Ring, Colmore Business District, Snowhill and Steelhouse, Southside, Town, Westside;

  • Central North: Eastside and Aston Triangle, Gun Quarter, Nechells, Newtown;

  • Central East: Bordesley, Digbeth, Small Heath;

  • Central South: Balsall Heath, Edgbaston, Highgate;

  • Central West: Hockley, Jewellery Quarter, Ladywood, Spring Hill.

The Draft Central Birmingham Framework 2040 is proposed as a route map to a greener, prosperous and healthier city, seeking to provide more jobs, better transport options and higher quality, energy efficient new homes.
