Society's response to Draft Local Plan Proposals consultation

In response to the consultation by Solihull MBC on its Draft Local Plan Proposals, The Knowle Society has today (17 Feb 2017) made its views known to the Council through the attached document. As with such consultations, response times are quite constrained; however the subject has immense implications for Knowle and a response from the Society is both imperative and expected.

Lodge Road closure - Gas Main replacement

We have learnt that, due to works involved in replacing a gas main, parts of Lodge Road and St John's Close will be closed and/or subject to one-way working for parts of the next four weeks, depending on the progress of the works. The works will require a one-way traffic flow along Lodge Road, Knowle from Monday 6th February to Friday 24th February 2017 as follows:
• from its junction with Warwick Road to junction with Dell Farm Close.
• from outside 15-17 Lodge Road to outside electricity substation on Lodge Road.
• from outside 53 Lodge Road to outside flats at 78-102 St Johns Close.

Boxing Day Walk - All welcome

The traditional post-Christmas walk takes place again this year, so why not stretch your legs on a gentle 3 mile walk with mulled wine and mince pies at the end - as if you needed more to eat!

Starts from the Guild House prompt at 11am - ALL welcome, so bring the family & guests. No dogs please, they struggle with the stiles and fall in the canal. Weather guaranteed; I don't know what it'll be, but there will be weather! The walk takes place anyway.
