Planning Applications



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).

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.

Society News

MFG&D Society 18/10/2019 - Half Yearly Meeting

The Society's Half-Yearly meeting took place in St. Andrews Church Hall as usual. The guest speaker was Ken Clarke, the well known local historian, who gave a fascinating talk on Local Emergency Services Past to Present.

After the talk Graham O'Connell gave an update on the proposed traffic lights in Frimley Green, saying that the alternative scheme without traffic lights proposed by Graham and Cliff Hilton had been accepted by Surrey County Council Highways but a number of hurdles still have to be passed before acceptance by all the involved parties.

After the break our Chair Sue Cartwright introduced the newly elected SHBC Councillors Morgan Rise, Helen Whitcroft (Mytchett/Deepcut) and Sashi Mylvaganam (Frimley Green). We then had the usual Q & A session with SCC & SHBC Councillor Paul Deach, the newly elected SHBC Councillors, Surrey Police and Crime Commissioner David Munro (pictured with Sue) and PCSO Sian Hudson. The Councillors and PCC David Munro covered a varied range of questions, PCSO Sian Hudson alerted the meeting to the latest telephone scam being practised on elderley people.

They are committed to developing devised and physical theatre performances which explore and illuminate minute human details that, in a world so big, are easily swallowed up.
