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

May meeting notes


Residents were interested in the speed indicator device that has been temporarily working in St. Leonard’s Road. Following the success of this initiative, funding has been received to purchase a new version and this should be working within the very near future.


Current Neighbourhood Councillors were validly nominated and elected without contest. There are vacancies and if you are interested in neighbourhood affairs, please contact the Clerk at Members of the public are always welcome to attend the monthly meeting that is held on the third Monday of each month in the Salvation Army Hall at 7.30 p.m.


Residents continue to be very concerned about overgrown hedges. These hedges are encroaching on pavements or blocking motorist sight lines. It is the owner’s responsibility to ensure that the hedges are maintained.


Any suspicious activity in Bennetts Field (possibly relating to drug dealing or usage) should be reported to the Police or our Neighbourhood Wardens, Alison Page 07795 051555 or Lucy Hallett, 07795 051561. Alison and Lucy have been appointed to assist the community in many ways although are not replacements for the police or an emergency service.


The Spring Newsletter was circulated just after Easter and the response has been excellent. Most comments have been about Phase 1 Forest Boys School – bus improvements. The next stage is a public consultation that closes on Monday 10th June 2019. Response of support or objection should be sent to: or via post to LTIP Team, 1st Floor, Northleigh, Chichester, PO19 1RQ
