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

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.

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!

Graham O'Connell 24/08/2020- Local Artist is up for a People’s Award

Local Frimley Green artist, Jane Diana Scott-Malden, is up for a People’s Award in the Lightbox’s Victoria Square art exhibition. This interesting exhibition is now available to view online, go to:

www.thelightbox.org.uk/victoria-square-art-project

Known by many in the area as Diana Jane, she has exhibited her work in previous years as part of the Surrey Artists’ Open Studios, which like many things did not go ahead this year. So it is great to be able to see her very creative photographic art as part of this well-known exhibition.

For anyone wishing to vote here are a few essential tips. Click the word ‘vote’ at the bottom left of the gallery. This will bring up an email. Write ‘vote’ in the subject box and the artist’s name in the message box.

If you would like to see more of Diana Jane’s work go to:

Graham O'Connell 29/07/2020- Frimley Green Traffic Lights - Your Chance to Vote

Update from Graham O'Connell:

On Wednesday 29th July we had a tremendous turnout to our online meeting and I am pleased to say it went really well. It was hosted by Councillor Paul Deach and Michael Gove MP gave a clear message of his support to get things started.

At the end of the meeting there was a poll which resulted in a resounding 100% vote for our design to enhance the existing roundabouts (Option B) rather than traffic lights (Option A). If you were unable to attend the meeting, you can vote at:

www.lights.vote.deachy.uk

This is an abreviated version of the update, for the comprehensive version, see the full update from Graham O'Connell.
