Birmingham, West Midlands

In 1989 the Merry Hill out-of-town shopping centre opened.

Birmingham’s CBD saw a decline in trade of 12% over the next 5 years.

Smaller towns with lower rates, more room for expansion and less congestion attracted offices away from the CBD.

The City Centre is the cornerstone of the City Council's commitment to raise Birmingham's national and international profile. It is becoming a highly attractive and accessible place to visit and do business. Its reputation and influence as a major business, tourism and international meeting place continue to grow.How is Birmingham’s CBD fighting back?

Bringing shops and shoppers back

The Bull Ring is one of the oldest parts of Birmingham and has been a market site for over 800 years.

The 1964 shopping centre was described by The Birmingham Post in 2003 as ‘a symbol of 60s urban decay’. From the 1980s, plans were made to rebuild the Bull Ring and in 2000 it was finally demolished. The largest retail regeneration project in Europe, costing £500 million, was put into action. The Bull Ring reopened in June 2003.

key ideas
The traditional characteristics of the CBD have created many problems.

Problems are environmental, economic and social.

The main problems have resulted from the movement of shops and offices to edge-of-town locations.

Regeneration schemes aim to improve the environment, reuse buildings and brownfield sites, create employment and attract more visitors.

Birmingham City Centre has several projects that are successful examples of regeneration.
