With a £1.5billion programme of investment underway, and with a growing list of development opportunities, Walsall is a thriving up-and-coming area of the West Midlands for investment.

This year, Walsall Council is delighted to be attending UKREiiF, the UK’s real estate, infrastructure and investment forum, to grow connections and put Walsall firmly on the map amongst developers.

Attending collectively alongside other West Midlands councils, Walsall will form part of the West Midlands Pavilion for the three-day conference. Delegates including the deputy leader and the chief executive will take part in panel discussions and share the vision for Walsall.

“ We are in the middle of a really exciting period of growth and now is the perfect time to put Walsall on the map with a presence at UKREiiF.

With so much investment being attracted to grow and improve the borough I’m confident that it is an attractive opportunity for investors and developers. I am looking forward to attending, and building relationships with investors, businesses and industry leaders

Centrally located just minutes from Birmingham with strong public transport links and highway connectivity, Walsall is an excellent central location to do business. With significant investment currently helping the council to revitalise derelict and brownfield sites to bring back into economic use, there are vast amounts of investment opportunities coming down the pipeline.

Walsall’s investment programme will lead to more opportunities for people and businesses, creating over 4,000 new jobs and building more than 1,000 new homes.


 Notes to editors

UKREiiF (UK’s Real Estate Investment and Infrastructure Forum) has established itself as the UK’s premier real estate conference and is an annual event that unlocks investments (including public sector assets) across the country by bringing investors, funders, developers and local authorities together.

The purpose of attending UKREiiF is to promote the regeneration of Walsall and to encourage investors, funders and developers into the Borough by highlighting our transformation into an investor-attractive destination and promoting sites that can attract interest from external funders, investors and developers.

For 2024, Walsall’s focus is primarily on establishing our presence in the market and improving our partnership relations across the West Midlands and with national funders, investors and developers. The expectation is that Walsall should be in a position to return to UKREiiF in future years in order to present specific site opportunities to attract market interest from funders and investors, given the programme of investment and funding from the Government that is part of our £1.5billion transformation.
