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

April meeting notes

SPEED INDICATOR DEVICE (SID)

The temporary device has not been working for several weeks. A new, updated version is on order and will be installed in St. Leonard’s Road area in the near future.

FOREST BOYS SCHOOL – BUS STAND IMPROVEMENTS

The proposal to install bus lay-bys at Forest Boys School will shortly be out for general consultation. Forest Neighbourhood Council is supporting this proposal.

CHANGES TO HDC PLANNING PROCEDURE

This was discussed in great detail although Forest Neighbourhood Council has not been officially contacted or consulted. This Council is strongly objecting to the majority of the proposals because it does not perceive these to be democratic.

BENNETTS FIELD FAMILY FUN DAY

This will be held on Saturday 15th June 2019

BUS CANCELLATION

Metro is reducing its No. 65 Service, Oakhill estate. The 17.08 and 17.38 services will be withdrawn. There is little point in challenging this decision which is due to funding reductions

NEIGHBOURHOOD WARDENS

Neighbourhood wardens are now able to use “warning” car stickers where cars are inappropriately parked.

FNC is concerned that the sight lines of many junctions, especially in Brighton Road, are being blocked because of badly parked vehicles.
