Birmingham City Council’s three political leaders (Cllr John Clancy, Cllr Robert Alden and Cllr Jon Hunt) have signed-up to the following shared vision for the city.
We are proud to serve the people of Birmingham. This is a welcoming city with an historic past and, more importantly, an exciting and influential future. A place where future success for the city means opportunity for all.
As the most youthful city in Europe, supporting young people to realise their potential is paramount – enabling Birmingham to be a great place for children to grow up and learn in, for adults and families to thrive in and, as we mature, to grow old in.
Working together, we must strive for a city that offers a good quality of life to everybody – a city where your postcode or background does not determine your ambitions and achievements.
The council’s role is to lead with others. Our shared purpose is to improve people’s lives, working with partners from across this great city – pulling together, with leaders across Birmingham and the West Midlands, to ensure citizens have services they deserve.
Our collective efforts must put people first; responding to their needs. We must invest in communities, creating opportunities for people to achieve their aspirations and give everyone neighbourhoods and a city to be proud of.
We will strive to make this vision a reality and look forward to working with the many who share these ambitions.
