The Agenda for Action outlines priorities for the first three years of the plan and establishes three main focuses for action that relate to the targeting and concentration of resources. These focuses are:

  • Regeneration Zones

The Agency has targeted its investment in six 'Regeneration Zones'. These are parts of the West Midlands where there is greatest need and opportunity for regeneration. Zone partnerships have been established to drive forward the regeneration process and ensure that real improvements are made over the next 10-12 years. The six Regeneration Zones cover roughly one third of the region's population, half of its unemployed and nearly three fifths of its long-term unemployed. The Zones include strategic land and sites where there are attractive development opportunities. The Zones provide strong contrasts between the most remote rural parts of the region (Marches) and inner urban areas (East Birmingham and Coventry). Detailed action plans have been drawn up for each Zone on the basis of local need with input from businesses and the community.
