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).

For the latest news and updates on the development visit the Mindenhurst website.
For the very latest updates on what's going on, building works, road works, traffic problems etc, see the
deachy.interests.me site run by Councillor Paul Deach. You can also join the email list to get regular updates sent to you.

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 former 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.
If you are interested in volunteering or have any questions, please contact the BVCP on 01252 331353 or email

Update on the proposed Frimley Green traffic lights
UPDATE - Borough Councillor for Mytchett and Deepcut Paul Deach met with the residents
who are leading the campaign against the Traffic Lights in Frimley Green in late February. He promised the residents that he would talk to the Head of Regulatory and the Leader of Surrey Heath Borough Council (SHBC) to get their position on this issue.
He found as far as they are concerned the matter is with Surrey County Council (SCC). If SCC is prepared to revisit the proposal of the Traffic Lights in Frimley Green and look at other alternatives then possibly there could be an agreement reached between SHBC and SCC to amend the 106 Agreement with the developer.
Residents have Paul Deach's full assurance (without any guarantees as to the outcome) that he will work closely with his Borough Colleague and Frimley Green Councillor Max Nelson to liaise at the highest levels at SCC and with the campaign against the Traffic Lights in Frimley Green to try and facilitate a satisfactory outcome for all concerned.
See the full Article for Councillor Deach's explanation of the background and what is currently happening on this issue
See STOPorGOFourWayTrafficLights on Facebook, a comprehensive guide to this issue set up by Cliff Hilton.
