The Knowle Society wants to draw up a Neighbourhood Plan document setting out what developments like housing residents want.

The plans – created under the 2011 Localism Act – must be considered when members of Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council make planning decisions.

The plans only come into affect through support in a public referendum.

The society is to hold a meeting to launch a forum to lead the development of the plan.
