Waste & Recycling Guidance following our AGM

With over 70 members present, despite the lure of one of the warmest and sunniest February days on record, the Society’s AGM began with our Chairman, Andrew Marston, recapping the many highlights of the year. A full report of the AGM can be read here:   Knowle Society AGM.

Following a refreshment break from formal business, the audience regathered for a most interesting presentation about waste and recycling in the borough from our guest speaker, Solihull’s Head of Waste and Recycling, Kalen Wood.

If you missed Kalen’s presentation, we encourage you to take a look now and see if you can improve your recycling. You can find a copy now on the Society’s website at [Recycling presentation].

Neighbourhood Plan Referendum

With a 35.66% turnout of the electorate, the ‘yes’ vote polled 5,056, the ‘no’ vote 207 with 8 spoilt papers.
This demonstrates an overwhelming support for the Plan and all it means to everyone here in the Plan Area of Knowle, Dorridge and Bentley Heath.
