Acocks Green Neighbourhood Forum is a community group organised and run by local people to discuss local issues and feedback the views of the community to the City Council and other relevant organisations.
The Forum has been in existence for over 15 years and represents the residents of 4,000 households in Acocks Green. We hold 4 or 5 public meetings a year that feature guest speakers on relevant issues such as transport, health, environmental concerns and local history. The meetings also give the public an opportunity to share and voice their concerns, which the Forum endeavours to represent on their behalf. Other community representatives, including the local police and councillors, also regularly attend the public meetings and are often available to answer queries.
Over the years the Forum has been key in establishing Westley Vale Millennium Green; the listing of the historic Vineries canal bridge on Woodcock Lane; improvements in community safety; and developing a network of mutual support amongst other Acocks Green community organisations. The forum also produces a quarterly newsletter to keep residents informed of our work.
Public Meetings take place at the Community Hall on Yardley Road, on the corner of Alexander Road. Posters are always displayed in the library and around the Green to advertise the meetings and of course all the up to date information is on our website.
We are always looking for people to become more involved in the forum and join the executive. If you are interested in your local community and would like to contribrute in anyway please contact us.
