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

October meeting notes


Forest Neighbourhood Council is represented at these HDC led “walkabouts”. During the Summer months, the route covered Queen Street and a number of issues were highlighted, particularly the problems with pigeon droppings under The Iron Bridge.

Every attempt is being made to involve Network Rail.


As at 21st October, HDC Planning had not released its report. Forest Neighbourhood Council submitted its objection but has no further information as to how HDC will respond to this application.


The Public Inquiry starts on 29th October at Horsham Cricket Club. It is expected to last three weeks.


The poor way in which the contractors are fulfilling the Grounds Maintenance Contract has been brought to the attention of HDC and WSCC officers.

It is understood that WSCC is acknowledging the comments that have been made and is re-visiting the contract.


Forest Neighbourhood Council has submitted its comments.

There is no objection to the development, especially as it will be solely social housing, but do object to the appearance and lack of parking spaces.
