As well as a source of Local Information, Village Hall Activity and Booking Availability, our website illustrates why we, the residents of Rowney Green, value our community and its rural setting – to the north, only 10 minutes drive from Birmingham City Boundary, and to the south, 10 minutes drive from the Redditch Boundary, but so very different in character.

RURAL CHARACTER

Preserving Rowney Green’s Rural Character is Important

So much so that our Planning Authority in Bromsgrove has provided us with a Planning Guidance Document to refer to before making changes to our property and/or its interaction with surrounding properties, country lanes and the natural environment

Click on the link below to access the document – our village is featured on pages 24-27

Extensive areas of bracken and bluebell woods are an added bonus. There are large pockets of uncultivated spinney and woodland as well as ancient grassland.

The agricultural community of Rowney Green has developed around Seechem Manor, Rowney Green House Farm and Rowney Lodge Farm, the buildings of which are now grade II listed. The ribbon development of Rowney Green Village, at the top of the hill, started its life as squatters’ cottages on Common Land, where it is understood that building an inglenook fireplace and chimney, followed within a 24 hour period by lighting a fire in it, gave right of possession. The small hamlet of Lower Rowney Green lies in an adjacent valley

Preserving rural character of the village doesn’t come easily.
