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
In recent months a temporary speed indicator device has been in operation in St. Leonard’s Road and more permanent equipment has now been funded through the Community Safety Partnership.
There is a 30 mph speed limit in St. Leonard’s Road and the introduction of SID has had a positive impact on making drivers aware of this limit. The Speedwatch initiative is fully supported by the Police.
The device is moveable and could be used throughout the neighbourhood.
Discussions took place relating to the Britaniacrest’s appeal against WSCC refusal for an incinerator at the Wealden Works.
This will be heard in October and the original objections made by Forest Neighbourhood Council will be forwarded to the Inspectors.
FOREST BOYS SCHOOL PHASE 1 WORKS
The first stages of consultation are taking place to install a bus layby outside Forest Boys School.
A wider consultation with the school community and residents immediately affected by the proposed improvement will take place in the near future.
This year’s Riverside Walk will take place on Saturday 6th July.
Last year more than 300 residents joined this walk and it is proving to be a well-received annual event.
FOOTPATH GHYLL CRESCENT/DICKINS WAY
A report is in circulation seeking to add to the Definitive Map and Statement a footpath from Dickins Way to Ghyll Crescent. This proposal is supported by Forest Neighbourhood Council.
Forest Neighbourhood Council Membership
We have councillor 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.
