The Solihull Local Plan is reaching the end of its development.  It includes two major housing developments in Knowle and relocation of Knowle Football Club.

We are running an online talk on Monday 18 January to explain the current plans and their impact on the area.  If you want to be up to date and understand what is likely to come, listen in on Monday.

Visit Knowle – Planned High Street Investment

Visit Knowle has been awarded £17,000 by Solihull Council from the Neighbourhood Community Infrastructure Fund. It is planned to invest our village centre with seating and planting and maybe more in the form of a ‘Parklet’.

What is a ‘parklet’? Where is it suggested that this might be done? Find out by watching the short video at :-

This is our First Online Meeting, join in and tell us what you think of this way of keeping in contact.

The Society is launching a short series of online meetings entitled ‘Foreseeable Future?’ looking at current proposals for change in our village. This will be the first.

Join us online from 7.30pm to 8.30pm on Monday 18th January when we will be joined by Gill Griggs who will acquaint us better with the two proposed Development Sites in Knowle in the Council’s Draft Local Plan.

Gill is a Member of the Society’s Planning Committee (also a member of the KDBH Neighbourhood Forum Team) and spent seven weeks before Christmas critically appraising the draft Local Plan and its implications for our area, contributing significantly to the Representations submitted by the Forum within the Consultation Period.

She will help us understand what is proposed for these sites, the likely housing densities, the suggested points of access from existing roads and footpaths, the potential implications for local services and any concerns about the viability of the plans.

The meeting will be using the Webinar Version of Zoom, for which installation of the widely used Zoom App (Windows, MacOS, Android or iOS) is recommended. Questions are invited in advance and may also be possible on the day.

Places are limited, so book your place today here.

 Scam: Nhs Vaccine Text Message  

Stay alert: watch out for a fake text message claiming to be from the NHS claiming you are eligible to apply for the vaccine and will include a link ‘to apply’.

The link takes you to a fake NHS website and asks you for payment and other personal details. Remember to remain vigilant and remember that the NHS will never ask for payment for the vaccine. Do not respond to the text message or click on any links. Suspicious text messages should be forwarded to 7726. This free-of-charge short code enables your provider to investigate the origin of the text and take action, if found to be malicious.
