Eddie Booth is a very experienced Conservation Consultant who was given the task by Solihull MBC of preparing a re-appraisal of the Knowle Conservation Area. On 17th November 2006 the committee accompanied Eddie on a walk round the Area. We found him very approachable, very knowledgeable, and very much in sympathy with our feelings. We believe there are very many fine buildings in Knowle and they should be given the best and most robust protection. He shares that view. A public meeting was held on Friday 23rd February 2007 in the Village Hall when Eddie made a presentation of the draft appraisal and Paul Watson was also in attendance.
The final report is available on the Solihull MBC website. If this link fails (as may happen in time to come), please contact the Knowle Society’s web administrator and a copy will be made available by other means.
It was, after all, the High Street that triggered the formation of the Society in the first place!
