20/11/2020 Update from Niki Dufour
Community Relations Manager

Mindenhurst Primary School is now complete and will shortly be handed over to Surrey County Council. Before that happens, we would like to invite the local community to explore this wonderful new facility.

We will be opening the doors, for pre-booked visits only, on Thursday 3rd December. To safeguard all our visitors and to ensure plenty of space between groups, booking will be essential. To book a place for yourself, or your bubble of up to 5 people, please contact hello@mindenhurst.co.uk . Further safety information and time slots will be provided for each booking.

Whilst every effort will be made to ensure this is a safe and successful event please be advised that changes to government covid-19 guidance might result in cancellation.

For the latest news and updates on the development visit the Mindenhurst whats on 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.


Campaign against proposed Frimley Green traffic lights

04/09/2020 Update from Graham O'Connell

Local residents have spoken and overwhelmingly voted down 4-way traffic lights in favour of enhanced roundabouts as the people’s solution for traffic mitigation measures in our village, Frimley Green.

In the public poll over 2,800 people voted. 98% voted in favour of the residents’ design to improve the existing roundabouts and only 2% voted . for 4-way traffic lights. That is a pretty resounding result and not a surprising one given the strength of local opinion canvassed.

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.


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.


On 7th October, the Secretary of State approved the Esso pipeline plan. Whilst there are some provisos relating to other areas, the plan with regards to our area is unchanged. So, for example, the St Catherine's Road SANGS will have works on it for many months, as we expected, but it will be put back in good order once work in our area is complete. (This is in para 4.61 in the Sec of State decision letter). The pipe laying plans and traffic orders as they affect our area have been approved.

Details can be found here

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.

Graham O'Connell & Cliff Hilton 04/09/2020- 98% Vote Down Traffic Lights

Local residents have spoken and overwhelmingly voted down 4-way traffic lights in favour of enhanced roundabouts as the people’s solution for traffic mitigation measures in our village, Frimley Green.

In the public poll over 2,800 people voted. 98% voted in favour of the residents’ design to improve the existing roundabouts and only 2% voted for 4-way traffic lights. That is a pretty resounding result and not a surprising one given the strength of local opinion canvassed; one that officials cannot now ignore.

On Thursday 3rd Sept we had an online meeting with Surrey County Councillor Paul Deach to feed back the results to Andy Stokes, SCC Highways Planning Officer. It now looks pretty certain that we will get enhanced roundabouts and not 4-way traffic lights and it was your votes that won the day!
