It leverages on key assets and initiatives already underway within the area such as the existing green and blue infrastructure, long-established transport routes, 230 local businesses, and the low and zero carbon businesses and energy systems driven by Tyseley Energy Park and the University of Birmingham’s Energy Institute.

The vision includes:

  • Creating an exemplary sustainable working and living ecosystem which is recognised for its approach to net zero and sustainability.
  • Linking to the city’s East Birmingham Inclusive Growth Strategy to promote inclusive growth in TEED that will benefit both local communities and the wider Birmingham area.
  • Collaborating with residents and businesses in the community to ensure the area is developed to the benefit of everyone.
  • Building on current momentum to attract more businesses to the area to join the green energy revolution.
