The government has agreed a bespoke housing package with the West Midlands combined authority – including both constituent and non-constituent authorities – that will see 215,000 homes delivered by 2030 to 2031, with local plans updated to deliver this by 2019 and a significant increase in the release of land for new homes.

In return, government has backed the ambition of the Mayor and agreed a package of support as set out in the attached outline agreement. The full package of support will be subject to business case and approval from government to ensure value for money.
