Why you should visit Springfield
The Government announced in February 2022 that Wolverhampton would be one of the first of 20 cities to benefit from part of £1.5billion Levelling Up funding for new infrastructure to be developed on brownfield land to boost housing and jobs.
The proposed Green Innovation Corridor aims to build on Wolverhampton’s growth as a centre for sustainable construction and create skilled jobs for local people in the emerging green economy.
It will focus on creating high-value jobs in specialist sectors, support student retention, harness home-grown talent, develop new opportunities for business investment and growth, and leverage private sector funding. Phase one of the Green Innovation Corridor is the Springfield Innovation Hub to be developed net carbon zero and based at the University of Wolverhampton’s £120million Springfield site – an architecture and built environment super-campus.
Please register and we look forward to welcoming you at the National Brownfield Institute and Springfield Campus.
