Birmingham Enterprise Zone

26 diverse sites at the heart of England’s second city, focusing on business and financial services, ICT, creative industries and digital media

Big City Plan:

The Zone is delivering Birmingham’s transformational Big City Plan, a 20-year vision to create a world-class city centre with a high quality business district. The Zone’s ambition is to create 40,000 jobs over its lifespan and give a £2.8bn annual boost to the local economy.

Investment plan:

The Enterprise Zone is playing a leading role in the redevelopment of Birmingham city centre, with work to begin shortly on the £450m redevelopment of Paradise Circus, as well as the expansion of the Midland Metro to Broad Street, in addition to a host of business and skills support packages. Activity is gathering pace, with eight sites already under construction, transforming the cities centre with new spaces and offices. The Zone will also be a gateway to the proposed HS2 rail terminal at Curzon Street

Business benefits:

The money made from the Enterprise Zone’s tax incentives will help skill the centre’s future workers, and business setting up in the Zone can also count on a generous support package to help them grow.
