Our vision and priorities 2017 to 2020

Our vision is a city of growth where every child, citizen and place matters.

We want Birmingham to be a city of inclusive growth where the opportunities and benefits of progress and investment are felt by all. Birmingham is a place of great diversity.  We want to celebrate our neighbourhoods and create spaces that benefit everyone.

We will focus on four key priorities, because we believe these represent the areas of greatest opportunity and challenge for all of us. 

These are the things we'll focus our resources on: 

  • Children
    We want Birmingham to be a great city to grow up in.
     
  • Housing
    We want Birmingham to be a great city to live in.
     
  • Jobs and skills
    We want Birmingham to be a great city to learn, work and invest in.
     
  • Health
    We want Birmingham to be a great city to grow old in.​

The Vision and Priorities 2017 to 2020 report sets out the ways in which we will rise to the challenges and make the most of our opportunities – so we can continue to build a city that benefits all of our Birmingham communities.
