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:
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 (Mindenhurst) development (see below
Advice on Benefits, Social Networks, Health Issues or Support for Carers
For the latest updates on the development visit the whats on page on the Mindenhurst 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.
Basingstoke Canal Updates
The Society will be keeping abreast on what is happening with the Basingstoke Canal.
For information on the maintenance and update work being done on the canal, see the Bulletins
and News from the Basingstoke Canal Society.
In 2011 we supported a petition to Surrey Heath Borough Council to increase their funding to the Basingstoke Canal inline with the other riparian councils, you can read about it in the article
on our website.
10/06/2021- Mytchett Crossroads Telecoms Tower - 21/0456/GPD
Update from David Whitcroft:
I am happy to advise that SHBC has refused permission for the above for the following reasons:
The proposed development, by reason of its siting and appearance, would have a dominant and intrusive impact upon the streetscene and for the
occupiers of nearby residential properties resulting an adverse impact on local character and residential amenity, failing to comply with Policy DM9 of the
Surrey Heath Core Strategy and Development Management Policies 2012.
The proposed development, by reason of its siting, would have an adverse impact upon visibility south from the road junction of Coleford Bridge Road
onto Mytchett Road resulting in conditions prejudicial to highway safety failing to comply with Policy DM11 of the Surrey Heath Core Strategy and
Development Management Policies 2012.
In the end, there were 21 letters against the proposal and one in favour.

Update - 03/06/2021
First 6 Esso Pipeline planning applications for Frimley Green publicised, see them here.
Update - 27/05/2021
The Esso Southampton to London Pipeline Project (ESLPP) have just released a local area specific timeline for installation which you can view on their website,
along with a new interactive map that shows information about construction in each
local area. The timetable gives an indication, by month, of when they expect to be working in each area. However, they are still progressing some construction details so the timeline may be
subject to some change.
ESLPP will start installing the pipeline in Chobham Common from October 2021. Vegetation clearance and some installation will take place from December 2021, with installation in all other areas
taking place throughout 2022 and into 2023. It looks like the work at St Catherine’s Road Sangs will start in December 2022.
Residents will be informed about works in their area before ESLPP start and local area information will be updated regularly on ESLPP's website before and during construction.
For more information about the Esso Southampton to London Pipeline Project see the Article on this site.
