Knowle

Yes

13

300


Purnell's brook.

Existing playing pitches.

Small portion of northern site is a Local Wildlife Site.

Historic setting of Knowle Conservation Area.

Split site. Northern section has a cumulative Green Belt score of 7 and southern section of 11. The eastern edge of Knowle, Dorridge & Bentley Heath (KDBH), which adjoins more open countryside, scores more highly overall than the western edge, which has more urbanising influences and ribbon development.

However, the western edge separates the main Solihull conurbation from the villages of KDBH  and prevents merging of these distinct localities. Furthermore, the River Blythe SSSI winds through this gap, with resulting large areas of floodplain and biodiversity interest, which form an important green and blue corridor.

In accessibility terms, the sites also score more highly than those on the western edge of KDBH, due to proximity to services in Knowle village centre.

The southern section scores highly in Green Belt terms due to views into Knowle Conservation Area, and responding to the historic setting of KCA would be a key factor in lay-out and design.

440. The plans that follow[61] show the approximate extent of the intended allocation, but at this stage it should be noted that the boundaries are not fixed and further work will be undertaken on the options to be taken forward and included in the submission version of the plan.

441. Nor does the inclusion of a particular parcel of land within the allocated area mean that it is to be developed.  In some instances the plans represent the area of land to be removed from the Green Belt, and to create logical defensible boundaries will mean that some existing buildings/uses that are not intended to be redeveloped will be removed from the Green Belt.
