Our structure

Better Streets for Birmingham is made up of a membership base and a committee. You can join as a member online and it is free of charge.


The committee sets the direction of the group and makes decisions about how it is run. Committee members are unpaid volunteers. Anyone can register interest in joining the committee by reaching out to a committee member.

There are 11 positions on the committee and roles last on a 1-year term basis. Most roles were last confirmed on 28 February 2022.
