Birmingham seeks European funds

Birmingham City Council has agreed to bid for £25 million of EU funding to help regenerate the city.

The council agreed to submit an expression of interest for two European regional fund programmes for Eastside and the Sparkbrook and Springfield wards.

A further £6 million from Advantage West Midlands and £3.5 million from the council would potentially match the funding.

The money could also support plans for a creative quarter in Digbeth creating a number of jobs for local people.

Advantage West Midlands will consider the bid with a decision due by mid-December.
