The West Midlands is experiencing an exciting period of economic growth; this in turn is driving a massive demand for new housing; a demand the West Midlands Combined Authority is determined to meet by unlocking 215,000 new homes by 2031.
Join us as Gareth Bradford, Director of Housing and Regeneration, West Midlands Combined Authority, discusses why unlocking new homes is such an important pillar of the WMCA’s work and sets out the initiatives in place to make the target realistic to achieve.
