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

January meeting notes

Speed Indicator Device (SID) in St. Leonard’s Road

A device is now in situ in St. Leonard’s Road with the aim of reducing the speed at which drivers travel. FNC supports this initiative as this is a busy road and used by many schoolchildren.

One comment has been made that since the introduction of “SID”, drivers are more aware of pedestrians and some are stopping to enable families to safely cross the road!

The Capitol Theatre

We understand that a consultation report about the future aspirations for the theatre is shortly to be published. It might include having one cinema and extended dining facilities.

Contra Cycling

WSCC is intending to introduce contra cycling in parts of this town. One proposal related to Barrington Road but after consideration and listening to concerns, WSCC has decided to delay the idea until less controversial routes go ahead and have been monitored.

Riverside Doctors' Surgery

This Surgery recently announced it was accepting new patients.

Wealden Brickworks Planning Application

WSCC has refused this application but the applicants have now appealed directly to central Government.

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.
