The Society is pleased to bring to your notice a new DVD Knowle A Celebration 2012 which captures a slice of life in Knowle in this special Jubilee year. This is now available to buy at Oxfam, Toni Barbieri, Royle Household and Lyons Butchers. The DVDs cost £10 each and all proceeds are being shared equally between four local charities; Friends of Knowle Park, 1st Knowle Scout Group, Arden PA and Knowle School PTA. This is your chance to own a lovely memento of a very wonderful year in our community.
Copies of the Society's submissions to Solihull Council on applications by Kimberley Developments in St Johns's Close for a Waitrose store and by McCarthy & Stone for a development at Chesshire House may be found on our Planning page - follow the 'Commentaries on local planning issues' link.
A public exhibition was held in the Village Hall on Saturday 25th August 2012 in which the initial, first and second versions of the proposed application were presented for comparison. The exhibition was extremely well attended - well over 500 people - with members of the Society's Planning Committee being fully engaged in answering questions from members of the Society and the general public. The exhibition included a significant list of amendments to the plans which have been 'won' by the Society being in discussion with the developers (attached below). Whether or not the proposal is approved, the Society aimed to get the best possible outcome for the community.
