The structure of the Society

The Society is organized into five specialist primary committees:

  • Planning
  • Local History including responsibility for the Local History Centre and the Archive
  • Community Services
  • Natural Environment
  • Meetings and Social including Local Walks

Additional committees, some seasonal, are formed as needed:

  • Annual Christmas Tree, Lights & Father Christmas Event
  • Knowle Green Community Project (Replacement for the bus shelter)
  • Village Plan / Neighbourhood Plan

Other major activities:

Representatives of the Society sit on the following external committees:

  • Airport Consultative Committee
  • BIA Environment Monitoring Working Group
  • Knowle Village Hall Association Council
  • SUSTAiN

The Knowle Society is a member, but totally independent, of:

  • Civic Voice (successor to the Civic Trust) ( www.civicvoice.org.uk )
  • West Midlands Amenity Societies Association (WestMASA)

The Society invites local Ward Councillors to attend its Trustee Meetings in a non-voting capacity and values the effective two-way communication that it has enjoyed from these relationships over many years.
