Who we are and what we do

The Rowney Green Association, known as the RGA, was established in 1988 for the purpose of coordinating villagers’ responses to expansion of Redditch towards Rowney Green and the route of the proposed Alvechurch by-pass. Following the success of modifying the route of the by-pass, the RGA continues to look after the interests of the community, the built environment and its rural setting in accordance with its Constitution.

The RGA liaises with the Local and Highway Authorities, Worcestershire Wildlife Trust, Utilities and other organisations as necessary, to flag up issues potentially detrimental to the community and the environment, including strategic and local planning, road safety, refuse collection etc.

If it matters to the village it matters to the RGA !
