A magnificent new Athletes Village in Perry Barr will be home to over 6,500 athletes and officials during the Games and later provide housing for the people of Birmingham.
The extensive new village will boost the local economy and skills sector, providing 400 jobs alongside 50 new apprenticeships, 30 paid summer internships and 1,000 pre-employment training places. These training places will give those involved the skills and industry accreditation to work on construction sites more widely throughout the region.
Following the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games, the village will be converted into 1,400 homes for the community. This is part of a long-term regeneration plan for Perry Barr and the surrounding areas that will eventually see 5,000 new homes.
As well as new housing the local residents will also benefit from improved sport and leisure facilities including a redevelopment of the Alexander Stadium. Transport improvements will include a new Sprint rapid bus service from Birmingham to Walsall as well as upgrades to local cycling and walking routes.
The Athletes Village is the largest infrastructure project directly related to the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games and will form a lasting legacy for the West Midlands.
