Planning & Scheme of Management

Planning & Scheme of Management

The Objectives of the  Calthorpe Residents’ Society include:

  • To preserve the beauty, history and character of the Calthorpe Estate
  • To promote high standards of architecture
  • To ensure consistency of the Scheme of Management as applied to the Calthorpe Estate

The committee receives notifications of all planning applications for properties on the Estate from Calthorpe Estates and from Birmingham City Council. These are considered by the Planning and Scheme of Management sub group which reports to the Committee at its monthly meetings. The sub group has delegated powers to express our considered views to BCC and to CE.

The CRS committee also acts on behalf of our members by having representation at liaison meetings such as the Selly Oak,  Edgbaston and Harborne liaison group where the implications of major schemes are considered.

In 2015, we successfully strengthened lines of communication with major institutions including: Queen Elizabeth Hospital, University of Birmingham, Birmingham City University.

Regular meetings are held with Calthorpe Estates  (Mainstay). We are grateful to the Director for his continuing help and support over a range of issues.

Contact may be made with the CRS Committee about planning issues and the Scheme of Management via the Contact Form. If you are not already a member of CRS we should be very pleased if you would join- just £10 per household (see Membership).

We shall continue to work hard to achieve our objectives on behalf of the residents.
