Discover the Potential Development Sites

Interested in finding out exactly where the over a thousand new houses that have been proposed for development in Knowle in the Draft Local Plan will be sited? Join The Knowle Society for an evening tour of the sites, approximately a three mile walk, on Wednesday 24th May. This stroll will commence at 7pm from the Car Park of Knowle (Jobs Close) Park. All are welcome. As this will involve exploring some potentially muddy fields, suitable footwear is recommended.

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.

KDBH Neighbourhood Forum response to Solihull Draft Local Plan – Final

 

Solihull Council proposals for 750 houses in the Arden Triangle and 300 houses off Hampton Rd

The Neighbourhood Forum has been very busy in the past year analysing the community’s views on potential locations for any additional housing that we are required to find room for in Knowle. Last week the Council unexpectedly released their plans, which are completely at odds with the emerging local views.

The number of houses proposed is far higher than expected and the sizes of the developments do not fit with the sizes of developments suggested by the community.

The Forum is holding a meeting at Arden Academy at 7pm on Wednesday Dec 7th.

KDBH ‘Developer Showcase’

Knowle, Dorridge and Bentley Heath Neighbourhood Forum is putting on a unique event of particular interest to Knowle Society members; this is a ‘Developer Showcase’ on Saturday, 16 July at Arden Academy, 10:00-14:00.

At the request of residents attending other recent events, the Forum has arranged this event so that anyone in our community has an early opportunity to gain a better understanding of what land has been put forward for potential development as part of SMBC’s ‘Call of Sites’ last January.
