Many thanks to all who took part in our recent consultation on the Government’s proposed changes to National Planning Policy and how it may directly affect the KDBH Area, particularly in regard to green belt policy and other important matters such as housing density and local infrastructure. 


With close to 200 completed questionnaires received, including detailed comments from 70% of contributors we were extremely pleased with the level of engagement. 


We recognise the Government's delay in confirming changes to the National Planning Policy may have unfortunate consequences as the submission of planning applications, detailed in our recent newsletter to Forum members may overtake matters.  Nevertheless, the responses are a significant help to us in highlighting local views which will inform both our discussions on the planning applications and also our response to the Inspectors when the Local Plan process finally resumes  


Our latest Newsletter provides an overview of the outcome. 

We are pleased to make available all the comments received which you can read via the button below. A number of comments received were very supportive of the Forum’s contribution in representing the wishes of the community to Solihull Council, Inspectors and site promoters for which we are most appreciative.
