SHBC Planning Policies
Under the Localism Act neighbourhood forums are community groups that are designated to take forward neighbourhood planning in areas without parish councils.
The DNF has been recognised by SHBC as the forum for the Deepcut Area, this is especially important on account of the PRB development (see below).

Basingstoke Canal Updates
The Society will be keeping abreast on what is happening with the Basingstoke Canal. You might like to read the article
on the Basingstoke Canal Petition and the discussion of the funding of the canal.
For information on the maintenance and update work being done on the canal, see the latest bulletin
or past bulletins from the Surrey and Hampshire Canal Society
along with their quarterly magazine, the Basingstoke Canal News.
Farnborough Airport Concerns
There is a possibility of a further large increase in flights to Farnborough Airport, for more information see the
Article by our chairman.
If you have any complaints or concerns about aircraft noise, the frequency and timing of flights, please contact
the Society as we have a representative on the Farnborough Airport Consultative Committee (FACC)
and on the Quiet Flying Programme working group of FACC. We are in a position to be able to make representations on your behalf and as a Society we carry more weight than an individual does.
If you wish us to take a complaint to FACC, it should be in writing and sent to us via mail or email.
Traffic calming consultation for Coleford Bridge Road
Update on the proposed Frimley Green traffic lights
UPDATE from Surrey County Council Transport Development Planning following the Local Committee meeting held on Thursday 30th June 2016 summarizing the current status:
"A response to the resident's petition was presented to the Local Area Committee on 10th March 2016 at which it was agreed to convene a separate meeting between the
County Council, the Borough Council, representatives for the Developer and the authors of the petition to discuss and understand their concerns. That meeting took place
on 5th May 2016 and whilst productive, a subsequent meeting has been requested and is currently being scheduled to include the Defence Infrastructure Organisation.
It was hoped that this subsequent meeting would take place prior to the Surrey County Council Local Area Committee meeting on the 30th June, but due to the prior commitments
of those requested to attend, this has not been possible.
It is envisaged that the meeting will now take place during July or August 2016, with a further update provided at the next Local Committee meeting on 29th September 2016."
