We have a vision for safe, decent and affordable housing – homes to fit the needs and aspirations of current and future citizens.

We will help support the delivery of new homes, revitalise our town centres, and get people connected through better road, rail and tram networks.

And we'll make the most of what our unique area already has going for it: like the vibrant city centre, our busy international airport, and the outstanding surrounding countryside.
