Community groups urged to bid for £500,000 arts funding
Arts groups and organisations wishing to engage with residents in Aston and Newtown can apply for grants from a £500,000 funding pot.

Newly formed groups will be able to apply for grants of £2,000 to £4,000 while established organisations can bid for funding between £20,000 and £100,000.

The second is to develop opportunities for black and minority ethnic creative entrepreneurs and producers. This will be through one award of £125,000 to an established organisation or consortium to support local groups in developing their skills and networks, and a further £25,000 award for helping them to grow capacity for the future.

Zero Heroes are coming to a cleaner, greener street near you

Birmingham City Council is urging residents to reduce, reuse and recycle waste through a new campaign called Zero Heroes. The campaign is part of a wider council initiative called Cleaner Greener Streets, which aims to help Birmingham work towards its target of becoming a zero waste to landfill city by 2035. Last year just 26.5 per cent of household waste in Birmingham was recycled, showing there’s still a long way to go.

Cleaner streets. Your having a laugh. I requested my street to be cleaned and i was told job done. When it wasn't. I then complained and was told job done...but it hadn't.

All what i request is cleaner streets for everyone (not just the posh area of Birmingham) and fly tipping to be punished more severely.

Birmingham invests £1 billion to get on the right track for HS2
Almost £1 billion of investment is being committed to redevelop a part of Birmingham that is set to be transformed by the arrival of HS2 in the city.

The Curzon Investment Plan is an ambitious 30 year strategy to unlock and regenerate the 141 hectares of land around the planned HS2 Curzon Street Station, led by the Greater Birmingham & Solihull LEP (GBSLEP) and Birmingham City Council.

Creating 36,000 jobs, 4,000 new homes, unlocking 600,000 sqm of commercial floor space and connecting the eastside of Birmingham to the rest of the city and beyond; the investment is the first major financial commitment by any local area in the country to use HS2’s arrival as a catalyst for regeneration. It also has the potential to add £1.4 billion to the local economy.
