A vision of a better neighbourhood

Balsall Heath’s neighbourhood planning is surging ahead. I was really impressed and excited by the recent community workshop run by Balsall Heath Forum, which saw 40 people who live and or work here spend a day talking through the problems and some solutions.
The Prince’s Foundation sent some community planners to help us make our suggestions into maps, showing; movement, buildings, green space etc. These maps with explanation will be on display soon for everyone to see, and an internet version is to be developed.
People’s ideas aspirations mostly turn out to be very compatible with the Energy Plan from Balsall Heath Is Our Planet. A better neighbourhood and a low energy neighbourhood have many points in common. We want a cleaner, greener and more sustainable place to live for the future, where people have more sense of control.
