SHBC Planning Policies




The Frimley Green Carnival Committee organises 3 events in the Frimley Green Area.


Any proceeds from the three events are distributed to local charities.

For information or questions like having a stall at the Carnival, email:

FGCarnivalCommittee@mfgdsociety.org.uk


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).

On 20th Feb a delegation from Skanska led by Mr Peter Cater gave a presentation to a meeting of the MFG&D Society Committee along with DNF members, on improvements to be made to Deepcut Bridge Road (DBR) as part of the S106 gains associated with the Mindenhurst Development.

The meeting expressed concerns regarding a third Pedestrian Crossing (considered unnecessary), the parking provision on the opposite side of DBR from the existing shops, the lack of proper public consultation prior to the lodging of Planning Application 19/2193 (Skanska were urged to hold a formal public meeting on the issue) and the lack of differing road surfaces which had earlier been indicated by Skanska would form part of the project.

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.


Update on the proposed Frimley Green traffic lights

26/06/2020 Update from Graham O'Connell:

The following is an abridged version of our latest update on what is happening in the long running traffic lights saga.

Earlier this week we had a Zoom meeting with County Councillor Paul Deach and SCC Highways Transport Development Planning Officer Andy Stokes.

What we have agreed to do now is to have an online public meeting plus the option for people to contribute questions, comments and vote on their preference by email if they cannot attend the live meeting.

This online public meeting will be held on Wednesday 29th July 2020 at 7pm. It will be live-streamed on Paul Deach’s facebook page so that we are able to present the old and the new scheme in order that residents can make an informed choice as to which they prefer. There will also be an opportunity for residents to ask us all questions about the various schemes.

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.


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.

Petition about protecting access to MOD land

The Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO) is proposing new bylaws affecting the MOD Land in the Aldershot and District Areas which might affect access for local residents.

As a result there is a Petition to maintain public access to MOD Land in the Aldershot and District Areas that local residents might wish to sign.
