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).

The Deepcut Development Project

Project update

On October 14th, from 7.30pm to 8.30 at the MFG&D Society's Half-Yearly public meeting, Sean Murphy of Skanska gave a project update on construction works and development activity for 2016-2017. This was similar to the update given to community representives on September 7th, see the Community Update (pdf file) for details.

There were questions on the effects of the project outside of the actual site, especially the Traffic Light Proposal in Frimley Green. For more on the project update along with the questions and answers, see the video courtesy of Paul Deach.

For the latest news and updates on the development visit the Mindenhurst website.

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.

Update on the proposed Frimley Green traffic lights

UPDATE - On September 6th, the long awaited meeting with the Princes Royal Barracks Developer was convened where Frimley Green resident representatives had the opportunity to voice their concerns and discuss a way forward directly with the MOD. Also represented at the meeting were SCC, SHBC, SCC Highways, SHBC Traffic Engineering, SHBC Planning and the Developer's Managing Agent, DL Ahearn.

Following lengthy discussion where opposing views and opinions were exchanged, along with some technical and legal issues, it was agreed that Frimley Green resident representatives would write to both the MOD and SHBC Planning seeking a formal review of the proposal to install four-way traffic lights in Frimley Green as prescribed in the Planning Obligation. Frimley Green resident representatives have now sent a formal letter and hopefully expect a response within 28 days.

See STOPorGOFourWayTrafficLights on Facebook, a comprehensive guide to this issue set up by Cliff Hilton.
