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).

Surrey I

Frixo


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 and Cliff Hilton:

Things continue to move at a snail's pace but we do at least now have a drawing(pdf) we can share with you as to what is proposed for the main junction in Frimley Green (instead of traffic lights).

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.

Skanska led by Mr Peter Cater gave a presentation at the monthly committee meeting on improvements that are to be made to Deepcut Bridge Road (DBR) as part of the S106 gains associated with the Mindenhurst Development. Attending the presentation along with the committee members were members of the Deepcut Neighbourhood Forum.

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.
