Our next Public Meeting takes place on Tuesday. Our guest speaker is Joe Holyoak, architect and Urban designer, who has made a study of Acocks Green Village and it’s historical development through the different architectural styles that exist in our area. He will give a slide presentation offering insight into some familiar buildings in our neighbourhood.  There is a proposal to make part of Acocks Green a Conservation Area, which is an official recognition of the historical value of some buildings. We already have several Grade II Buildings, including the Police Station and the Baptist Church.
