Joe Holyoak is an architect, urban designer and lecturer, with extensive experience in community-based neighbourhood planning and urban regeneration. Joe will talk about the post-war changes in planning policies and how they effected urban housing in Balsall Heath. This will give a fascinating look into why Balsall Heath looks the way it does and how urban planning affected immigration.

Join The GAP and Balsall Heath History Society to look at the collected Oral and Written Histories in the resource room to make sense of how Balsall Heath has changed over the past 50 years. Share your own memories or listen to others share theirs! Please feel free to bring any images or memorabilia.
