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 development (see below).
Advice on Benefits, Social Networks, Health Issues or Support for Carers
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
Update from Graham O'Connell:
It has been some time since I last updated you but at last we have something meaningful to say.
Firstly, Skanska have confirmed in writing that they would like to go ahead with the improved roundabouts option for Frimley Green rather than
the original 4-way traffic lights scheme. The Borough council have indicated that if Surrey County Council Highways are content then so are they. This is all good news if a little slow in coming.
Over a year ago we were promised a public meeting and we have been keen to ensure that still happens. This is to allow you to see the plans, ask questions, feed in comments and, if you are happy with all that,
to cast your vote for roundabouts rather than traffic lights.
To that end we have two types of meetings, you can read about it
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.
Jacques Olmo Asking for Volunteers to Help Self Isolating People in the Community
We need to make sure the most vulnerable in our community are protected from Coronavirus. Help the most vulnerable by posting these through people's doors.
If you can volunteer time to help your community please contact Jacques Olmo:
Phone: 07843 052869
If enough people agree to help, we can make sure all our neighbours are looked after. Lets try to find volunteers in every road. Jacques is happy to co-ordinate but can't do it alone!

02/03/2020 - Repairs to Paths on the Frimley Green Village Green
Graham O'Connell reports that there have been some patchwork repairs to the worst bits of the paths across Frimley Green Village Green. He says that
we shall have to see how long it lasts, but the path is now safe.
Graham has been pestering for this to happen for awhile and thanks must go to our local Frimley Green Councillor Sashi Mylvaganam for helping chase this along.
See the Full Article for more.
24/02/2020 - Planting Replacement Trees on the Green
Graham O'Connell and Sodexo planted two replacement trees on the green. These replaced newly previously planted trees that had been damaged whilst routine maintenance work was done on the Green.
One is a spring flowering cherry and the other winter flowering cherry, see the Full Article for more.

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.
See more on the Petition on this website.
A useful summary of the Esso Pipeline Hearing courtesy of the Liberal Democrats can be read here (pdf file).
This was written by our local Councillor Cliff Betton who attended the hearing and distributed by Councillor Sashi Mylvaganam.
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.
