Being in the industrial heartland of Britain, businesses flock to our area. We're at the heart of the motorway network, connected to the West Coast Main Line, and only 30 minutes away from Birmingham airport.
But we need to make the most of the opportunities that these bring.
HS2 is a fantastic opportunity for our area as we will see journeys from West Bromwich halve from 2 hours to just over 1.
