Hub Growth and Infrastructure Plan (HGIP)

In order to fully appreciate and realise the immense scale of this opportunity, the UGC has developed a coherent UK Central Hub Growth and Infrastructure Plan (HGIP).

This document sets out the growth ambitions for the Hub, including infrastructure requirements, in order to maximise the full potential of this once-in-a-generation opportunity.

Working with our key stakeholders in the public and private sectors, the UGC aims to create a vision for the Hub that will combine all of their development proposals as an overarching sustainable growth strategy.

Phased Delivery

The UGC has set out a phased delivery strategy.

Through its Growth and Infrastructure Plan, the UGC has identified key requirements and development opportunities which, because of their unique location will provide:

  • Maximisation of transport systems
  • Utilisation of new systems for increased power generation
  • Improved economic competiveness for global markets
  • Market leading digital technology
  • Creation of unique forms of sustainable housing and community facilities

The UGC will work closely with key sponsors including the Government, HS2, Highways England (HE), Network Rail (NR) and Transport for West Midlands (TfWM) to ensure that key primary infrastructure and national scale investment is optimised.

The UGC intends to adopt a facilitation role that will aid co-operation and collaboration between scheme promoters and ensure a phased approach is adhered to.

In addition, the UGC will be looking to deliver key secondary infrastructure investment in partnership with the WMCA/SMBC and development interests in the area.

The long term growth ambitions for the Hub are shown in phases of five years to reflect the infrastructure delivery requirements.
