Bromsgrove Centres


“Our towns and villages are at the heart of the community and as such their vitality and economic future should be supported, promoted and enabled”

About the Centers

In the light of national trends like increasing use of internet shopping, reduced footfall in town centers and a growing population, the Council set out an approach to supporting all centres in its Bromsgrove Centres Strategy

The Centres Strategy covers a three-year period for the high street and 7 outlying centres - Alvechurch, Aston Fields, Barnt Green, Catshill, Hagley, Rubery and Wythall. It is a high-level document that states we will work together to make all Bromsgrove centres a place that attract more businesses, shoppers, workers, residents, and visitors.

We want to support communities and businesses in all centres, although we will work with different centres in different ways.

For instance, we encourage smaller local and district centres to take more responsibility for driving local improvements themselves with support, while main centres can expect to see a greater level of support, reflecting the larger number of jobs and businesses they accommodate.

We will work with Parish Councils, Business and Trader Associations and other key stakeholders in each of the centres with a focus on developing shared ambitions and actions.
