Perry Barr regeneration
About Perry Barr
Perry Barr is a 15-minute journey north-west of Birmingham city centre. It's home to some outstanding open spaces including Perry Park and Perry Hall Park, the former of which is where the Alexander Stadium is situated.
Perry Barr sits within a Parliamentary Constituency of the same name, that encompasses Aston, Birchfield and several other neighbourhoods. The focus and driver for the regeneration is the Perry Barr Centre, an established Urban Centre serving the wider area.
Almost half (46%) of residents in the area are under the age of 30, contributing to wider Birmingham being the youngest city in Europe. The area is one of the most diverse parts of the city with 60% of the population from a BAME background, creating a vibrant and multi-cultural district, full of talented and inspirational people.
Perry Barr is currently benefitting from £700+ million of public sector investment focusing on enhancing infrastructure, providing new homes and creating new community spaces.
