Birmingham Health Innovation Campus

The University of Birmingham and Bruntwood SciTech are partnering to deliver Birmingham Health Innovation Campus (BHIC) - a world-leading health technologies campus, which will be the only science park in the West Midlands dedicated to health and life science innovation and technologies.

BHIC will support a thriving community of world-leading businesses, working in close collaboration with clinical and academic experts to develop integrated, data-enabled and patient-centric health innovations. In the first 10 years, it is estimated BHIC will create up to 10,000 new jobs in the wider economy and boost the local economy by around £400m per year.

In February 2020, BHIC was announced by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) as one of only six Life Sciences Opportunity Zones in the UK. This has come at a critical time for life sciences in the UK, when research and health innovation is as important as ever.

Welcome to the consultation website

We recently submitted an enabling works planning application to Birmingham City Council. This is to secure planning permission for initial onsite work including earthworks and site levelling, below ground services and drainage infrastructure, power provision and a site access road to prepare the site for development.

We are also launching a public consultation to share our plans for the site and give you an opportunity to find out more and share your thoughts.

We are preparing a hybrid planning application which will enable us to develop the site in phases. The hybrid planning application will include a detailed design for Phase 1 of the development as well as details on transport and access within the site, while outlining our longer term aspirations for the rest of the site. The details of subsequent phases will be finalised by future planning applications.
