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 3rd June additional plans and information were received for the Bovis application
for 131 homes in the northern part of the Mindenhurst development.
You can see the changes to the layout in the
Design & Access Addendum (pdf) document. Page 12 shows the new layout, page 14 and 15 the layout changes.
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.

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.
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.
Update on the proposed Frimley Green traffic lights
Update: Graham O'Connell and Cliff Hilton announced that Surrey County Council Highways have at last accepted their improved roundabouts design for Frimley Green as a suitable alternative to 4-way traffic lights. Hooray! It has only taken 1,460 days.
The legal agreement - which also involves the developer and the Borough Council - now needs to be amended. We have asked for a Public Meeting so that you can see the proposed design and be able to share your views before that final stage.
We don't know yet just when that will be but we will be in touch as soon as we know more.
For more, see the Full Update.
More information can be found on 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.
Esso is planning to replace 90km of the original 105km aviation fuel pipeline that runs from the Fawley Refinery near Southampton, to the West London Terminal storage facility
in Hounslow. The map below shows the route of the original pipline through the Frimley, Deepcut area.
