We Did

Minor changes have been drafted prior to adoption of the Framework.


Northfield town centre is one of the key centres in Birmingham. It is designated as a District Centre and it provides a full range of local services and shops, functioning as a traditional town centre. In recognition of its importance as a busy, vibrant centre providing shops and local services serving the south of the City, the Council has developed this framework to help Northfield to retain its position, remain competitive and attract new investment.

In recent years, the Council has worked with partners to bring forward significant investment which has increased Northfield’s attractiveness as a place to do business, shop, work and live. The need to continue this role into the future is regarded as being of paramount importance for the City, and the long term regeneration of Northfield is a key aspiration of Birmingham City Council.

The aspiration of this framework is to attract new investment into these sites whilst maintaining Northfield’s traditional town centre character.

This framework identifies development opportunities to increase the diversity of convenience and comparison offer, attract new services, offices and other town centre uses and increase employment opportunities for local people. It seeks to promote investment and new high quality development that will deliver substantial regeneration and strengthen Northfield’s role as a key centre serving south Birmingham.

The draft regeneration framework builds upon the aspirations of the Big City Plan and sets out the vision and development principles for the future regeneration of Northfield Centre.
