GBSLEP support local Birmingham business-led organisations with green ambitions

17 Mar 2022

To fulfil their vision to to create a more attractive, greener and safer city, Birmingham’s city centre Business Improvement Districts (BIDs) developed a master plan for green infrastructure last year.

In early 2022, the Going Green Masterplan was launched at an stakeholder event in the city centre. The report is a ‘toolkit’ of interventions to enable local decision-makers to make choices about implementing green infrastructure across the city. Colmore and Retail BID, which operate in the city core, commissioned UK-based international architects and urban designers Broadway Malyan to create the master plan.

It received £50,000 funding from Greater Birmingham and Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership (GBSLEP) as part of the Towns and Local Centres programme and it will use the toolkit to inform green development opportunities in the area.
