Each year the Council distributes money to local projects that improve the local ‘infrastructure’.  Last year the Society was awarded a large sum of money which enabled the Playground project to be launched.  The time has come for this year’s projects to be voted for by local communities, so this is your chance to influence which project gets money to help it get off the ground.

The KDBH Forum is calling on all local residents to vote for their preferred project(s).
The funds available to the two local areas are:-

  • Dorridge & Bentley Heath – £39,040.06​
  • Knowle – £20,499.61

These are this year’s contenders:-

Not yet voted for the KDBH community project(s) you think most deserves funding this year?  
We’ve had lots of votes – although from only 93 members so far… Please support this important event.  It’s not too late.  With last week being half term, we’ve extended voting until 5pm, Saturday 6 November 2021 to allow as many as possible to vote, although this shortens how long we have to analyse the results and report back to the Council.
Don’t miss out – it’s quick and easy to vote.  All details on our Webpage Here.

There is a very long way to go before we see any changes on the ground.  The project team have to react to comments made by Knowle Society, tenants and the public, revise the scheme, undergo further consultation and submit a planning application which will be very carefully scrutinised and, if it is approved, appoint contractors.
Comments can be made at this stage to


The Society is very pleased to record that the project has been completed and is in full use. We are grateful to those who drove it forward and to those who supported it through donations.  The children (of all ages) are making good use of it.

Keep your eyes open for a possible second phase to improve the exercise equipment.
