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.
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

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
On Friday 25th January, the lead campaigners, Cliff Hilton, Graham and Angela O'Connell along with the Society's President Sue Cartwright met with all the local councillors in a meeting chaired by Michael Gove. They put forward the residents' latest refined design
of improvements to the mini roundabouts as an alternative to traffic lights. This was supported by comparative performance figures provided by the developer's transport advisors, Watermans.
A synopsis of the key points from the meeting can be seen 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.
