Perry Barr has seen notable changes since 2020 due to a significant investment of more than £700 million into the area. These changes include the delivery of new homes, improvements to public transport, walking and cycling routes, new community facilities and lively public spaces.

Several improvements to the transport network have been made. These improvements include enhancements to the Perry Barr rail station and bus interchange, and the introduction of the Sprint bus rapid transit network, all complemented by a range of high-quality new developments in the local centre.

Perry Barr's Alexander Stadium, already a focal point for international and regional athletics, has been transformed to host the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games. It has increased seating capacity, 2 new running tracks and improved open spaces - attracting more investment and commercial opportunities to the area.

The council and its partners have invested significantly in Perry Barr to deliver the transport, highways and phase one residential scheme. The council has also made a compulsory purchase order to unlock future growth in the area that supports key land acquisition and assembly.

The wider regeneration programme has other long-term opportunities, including further housing to be built over the next 20 years and ongoing infrastructure improvements, which have been captured in the 'Perry Barr: A Vision for Legacy' master plan.

We will keep you updated as future development phases progress. You can discover the developments in Perry Barr with our regeneration map.
