Regeneration within Northfield

Northfield town centre is one of Birmingham's key District Centres providing a full range of local services and shops. In recognition of its importance as a busy, vibrant centre the south of the City, we have developed this framework to help Northfield retain its position, remain competitive and attract new investment.


In recent years, we have 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 one of our key aspirations.


The Northfield Regeneration Framework aims to attract new investment into the area whilst maintaining Northfield’s traditional town centre character. It identifies development opportunities to increase the diversity of convenience and comparison shopping, 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 Framework was adopted on the 31st July 2014. Further information can be found here

Urban Centres Framework

The Urban Centres Framework provides the strategy to support urban centres to transform into diverse, well-connected and unique hubs at the heart of local communities. Following four months of public consultation from November 2018 to March 2019, the framework was adopted by cabinet on 21 January 2020. The framework covers 10 initial centres including Northfield, which is featured on pages 26-27.

Urban Centres Toolkit (courtesy of Birmingham City Council ) provides practical advice and information to support all Birmingham centres.
