October Meeting of DRA

When: Monday 13th October 2014, 18:00 onwards
Where: Old Crown Restaurant, High Street Deritend, Digbeth

The next meeting of Digbeth Residents Association will take place on Monday 13th October at 18:00 in the Old Crown on Digbeth High Street. Please find an agenda for the meeting at this link. The meeting will include a discussion of recent research into the Slow Architecture approach to regeneration adopted at Warwick Bar.

The research explored how taking regeneration step by step – as opposed to flattening a neighbourhood and starting again – can actually help build a stronger sense of community and responsibility between the owners and residents of an area. During the meeting we hope to discuss the future of Digbeth and how it may evolve, particularly in light of HS2 and its unquestionable impact.
