Stockland Green is an area of Birmingham, England.

It gives its name to a ward which is part of the Erdington formal district, and is located to the south-west of Erdington and north-east of Birmingham City Centre. The ward comprises the areas Gravelly Hill as well as Stockland Green itself. The area is often mistakenly identified as Erdington, normally through domestic and commercial addresses. The area however has its own council ward and is outside Erdington's traditional boundaries, previously in the Birmingham Aston constituency.


The 2001 Population Census recorded that there were 23,060 people living in the ward with a population density of 4,487 people per km2 compared with 3,649 people per km2 for Birmingham. 24.7% (5,706) of the ward's population consists of ethnic minorities compared with 29.6% for Birmingham in general.


The ward was dominated by the Labour Party between the mid-1980s to 2007 and sent three Labour councillors to Birmingham City Council. However, in 2008 this changed when Matt Bennett won for the local Conservative Party.

Stockland Green has a Ward Support Officer.
