Solihull Council Draft Local PlaN


18 November 2020

We're very aware that navigating though, reading and assessing the huge amount of documentation released by the Council on 30 October is a daunting task - even if only the extracts of information most relevant to KDBH provided Here

So today we're really pleased to be releasing some short videos, a more 'easy to digest' way to understand what Council proposals mean for KDBH and also to let you know your Forum Team's emerging (but still ongoing) analysis. It's been challenging.  But our aim and hope is that the video format will enable and stimulate questions and feedback from across our community.  The videos, and supporting information, can be viewed on our new webpage Here
