Knowle Society is celebrating a major success in the preservation of TWO green open spaces through their registration as village greens. The two areas border Knowle Park, thereby extending the area of the park for use by local people. Unfortunately, we were not successful in regard to one other area, so this has been lost as a green space open to the public.
More news and maps of the areas will posted in the week beginning 10th October.
Two September conservation working days will be taking place in the LNR. Working parties from the Solihull Conservation Volunteers and the Birmingham and Solihull Midweek Volunteers will be there on Sunday 25th September (10.30am to 4.00pm) and then on Thursday 29th September (11.00am to 4.00pm). Anyone who would be willing to help would be welcome.
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.
