What's on in the Horsham District?
Briefly . . .
Forest Neighbourhood Council (FNC) represents the views of residents by acting as a channel for consultation with the County and District Councils and other community bodies
March meeting notes
There is to be a trial introduction of Town Wardens in the town (and the role will also include the unparished parts of the town). This Council will be represented at the meeting when the job description is prepared.
This Council is extremely upset about the current state of many grass verges in Horsham Town.
We are describing this as “environmental vandalism” as it is spoiling the appearance of our town, especially along the main routes into the centre.
We are pursuing ways in which to try to enforce builders and developers to “make good” verges.
STATION ROAD – ROAD MARKINGS
Finally, the Station Road “no right turn” marking has been reinstated. Hopefully this will deter vehicles from not adhering to the rules in the future.
This Council is pressing West Sussex Highways Department to reinstate the road to the state it was prior to recent roadworks. The Contractors have only carried out temporary repairs.
APPLICATION TO USE WEALDEN BRICKWORKS
A further application has been submitted by Britaniacrest for recycling use, including the installation of a tall chimney. This Council will again submit its objections.
Forest Neighbourhood Council Membership
We continue to have vacancies and will welcome enquiries about the councillor role from residents within the Forest Neighbourhood.
Whilst we are a non-statutory council, we are a voice for local matters and liaise with Horsham District Council.
Next Council Meeting
Monday 16th April 2018 at 7.30 pm in the Salvation Army Hall, Booth Way
