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).
Advice on Benefits, Social Networks, Health Issues or Support for Carers
On August 6th, there was a public exhibition at the Deepcut Cadet Hut where Bovis presented their proposals for 131 homes at the northern end of Mindenhurst. For more detailed information, see the
Mindenhurst Proposals on the Bovis Homes website.

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.

l run three sessions a month, group meetings, pub lunches and various trips on Fridays. It's very rewarding for both the the Stroke Victims/Carers who need our help

Update on the proposed Frimley Green traffic lights
25th June UPDATE: A further technical meeting was held with Skanska and lead campaigners to consider non-traffic light options. As a result of further discussion and consideration additional remodelling work is required which will be reviewed and discussed at the next planned technical meeting in late September. To some extent the 'pressure' to reach an agreed solution is currently 'off' as the deadline
for completing the traffic mitigation works in Frimley Green is now February 2021. Nevertheless the campaign's work will continue unabated to ensure a solution acceptable to the residents of Frimley Green is ultimately achieved.
For all of the updates, see the STOP or GO Four Way Traffic Lights site on Facebook,
a comprehensive guide to this issue set up by Cliff Hilton.
For more on the original e-petition, see the Article on this site.
