Tyburn Ward is six miles North- East of the City Centre. It is made up of three municipal housing estates: Birches Green, Pype Hayes and Castle Vale, plus Bromford, an established industrial area.
The Ward has witnessed a considerable amount of change over the last ten years, in particular much of the housing stock on Castle Vale and Pype Hayes has been replaced and this has been accompanied by environmental improvements and investment in health and community facilities.
The re-development of the Castle Vale area has been undertaken by the Housing Action Trust (HAT), established in 1993. The re-building of the Pype Hayes estate has been carried out by the City Council, in partnership with private developers and housing associations.
The industrial area, Bromford, has undergone rejuvenation, with the retail development of the Fort Shopping Centre and further development of the surrounding areas. Bromford will benefit from the Heartlands Spine Road which has linked the A47 Nechells with the A47 Chester Road.
