Birmingham Civic Society’s planning committee are looking for new voluntary members.

The planning committee helps support the development of Birmingham. We respond to consultation requests from developers, usually for large developments or those involving the city’s historic environment.

The committee is looking for people who:

  • Live and/or work in the city
  • Care about the built environment in Birmingham
  • Can commit a few hours of their time every fortnight
  • Are keen to take part in judging awards to promote design, meeting applicants to discuss proposals received or taking part in public consultations.

You need to be able to invest the time in understanding applications we receive and the issues involved, but you do not need to have knowledge or experience of the planning system.

You will have the opportunity to meet like-minded people who feel strongly about the role of the built environment in making Birmingham a better place for everyone.

If this sounds like something you would like to get involved in then please get in touch to learn more about what is involved. Deadline is 30th October 2020.
