The West Midlands has both densely populated and Industrial areas. We have excellent transport routes, connected to the UK’s busiest road and rail route, as well as having one of the largest airports in the UK, Birmingham International. There continues to be significant investment in modernising and changing the face of the West Midlands, providing more commercial opportunities and residential accommodation. An example of this is the Birmingham ‘Big City Plan’ that aspires to achieve a £10 Billion Investment over 20 years.
