If you love living or working in Knowle, Dorridge or Bentley Heath (KDBH), and care about the future of our villages, then you've come to the right place! ​ This site is dedicated to all things KDBH.

A change in planning law gives local communities - that's YOU - new powers to determine how THEY want to see their Area develop.
