A landmark growth plan which will create more than 77,000 jobs and add over £4 billion to the region’s economy has been set out by the UK Central Urban Growth Company.
Business and public sector leaders have outlined a 20-year vision for the UK Central site in Solihull which will include new homes, commercial space and transport infrastructure to join up key assets such as the NEC and new HS2 station.
The plan is being revealed at international property conference MIPIM in Cannes.
The UK Central Hub has 8.34 million sq ft of development land and space for up to 4,000 homes and the growth plan expects to create 77,500 new jobs and add £4.1 billion GVA to the local economy.
The Growth & Infrastructure Plan was set up as a special vehicle to lead and develop major infrastructure investment in the Hub.
