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.   

New coronavirus Community HUB GOES LIVE!

Our 19 March Newsletter talked about putting in place a communications and support infrastructure to draw together coronavirus related resources and activities across our Area.


Well, things move fast these days and the service is now up and running!  The IT whizzes at Arden Academy have set up a website, along with email, Facebook and Twitter accounts, that together provide a window on what's happening locally and link the various activities underway.  


The website is a "go to" place for local information and advice.  With involvement from local people, businesses and community groups, it provides a central hub to keep up to date on the latest news.  People can also register to volunteer and be matched with those in need.


This is where you can help - whether as an individual, business or community group.  Firstly, please spread the word so that as many people as possible are aware of the new service.  Also, equally importantly, please get in touch via any of the links below if there's anything you think would be beneficial to share across the community:


This is a time for our special community to come together - please get involved.

Kick Covid - Resources to help keep us sane

We've created a new Community page and are in the process of populating it with some resources available online that may help keep us all sane over the coming weeks and months.  See where we have got to Here  it's a work in progress!
