NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN REFERENDUM DETAILS

The referendum will be held on Thursday 14 March

In summary, it works just like any Local Council Election.  Anyone 18+ registered to vote in Local Council Elections and residing in the KDBH Area will receive a polling card in mid February.

Don’t forget that you can register for a postal or proxy vote if you’re going to be away from KDBH on 14 March, in exactly the same way as you would for Local Council Elections.

Copies of the Plan can be found at:- https://www.kdbh-np.org/ There are two versions, a PDF one and an ‘e-book’ which you can read electronically in the same way as a normal book.

PLEASE MAKE A NOTE OF THE DATE AND VOTE. It is vital that as many people as possible vote (and in favour!). Every policy in it has been created as a result of local public support.

[NB THIS IS NOT THE SOLIHULL LOCAL PLAN, WHICH IS THE ONE PROPOSING ALL THE EXTRA HOUSES. THE AIM OF THIS PLAN IS: –

To conserve the KDBH Area as a unique place within Solihull Borough, characterised by its community spirit, village character, attractive green spaces, well preserved historic buildings and conservation areas and vibrant local economy.

Created by local people for local people, the Plan defines policies to be used by Solihull Council and developers on how new development should be done in our villages. It will shape development in our Neighbourhood for the next 15 years – however the consequences will be felt by generations to come. More info in a short video at
