ECONOMY & ACCESSABILITY - Birmingham’s economy is worth £24.8 billion and continues to grow, with planned investment of £10 billion over the next 20 years. The £200 million expansion of Birmingham International Airport and launch of the forthcoming High Speed railway to London (HS2), makes Birmingham the most attractive regional city for major firms relocating. The city centre is already home to global businesses such as HSBC, Deutsche Bank, Deloitte and PwC. The wider urban area attracts a diverse range of employers – from hundreds of tech-based start-ups to major businesses such as Kraft, Amey and Jaguar Land Rover. A city with one of the youngest populations in Europe with an estimated 45% of the residents under 30, Birmingham offers a thriving rental market for investors. Birmingham has been ranked as having the highest quality of life of any English city outside the Capital. Its 8,000 acres of parkland and open spaces make it one of the greenest conurbations in the country. As a city in the midst of ambitious regeneration and growth, more people and businesses are choosing to relocate here. The market for new homes includes the entire city region of 4.1 million people yet there is a predicted shortfall between now and 2031, making it likely that prices will continue to increase. The arrival of HS2 to Birmingham in 2026 will be a major catalyst for regeneration and expansion. Over the next 30 years, HS2 will have a transformational impact on the city and wider region – accelerating growth, creating jobs and driving economic prosperity. The forthcoming HS2 terminus will make Birmingham a gateway to Europe’s high-speed rail network. Birmingham Curzon will be a world-class station wired into the city’s unique position in the UK and the skills of its population. With HS2, journey time between London and Birmingham will be cut from 1 hour 24 minutes to just 49 minutes. Moreover, Birmingham’s International Airport is a hub for over 50 airlines which fly to 150 destinations. For leisure and entertainment, the city is home to 4 Michelin-starred restaurants – the most anywhere outside of London. And the Commonwealth Games will also be hosted in Birmingham in 2022 generating a further £750m of investment into the city.
