Notes from Council meeting in December 2021


By now, every house in Forest neighbourhood should have received a copy of the Autumn Newsletter. This includes current matters as well as useful information. The newsletter can also be seen on the News page of this website.


Following the success of this year’s Riverside Walk, a date has been set for next year – SATURDAY 14TH MAY 2022. This event is now being organised by Horsham Scouts.


Horsham District Council Compliance Team is aware that this cabin is situated at the rear of Horsham Railway Station and a Case Number has been allocated.


Following the appointment of HDC Leader Jonathan Chowen, DC Christian Mitchell has been appointed Cabinet Member to champion Horsham Town.


Planning Application ref. WSCC/047/21 is a proposal to create a 3G Artificial Grass Pitch with perimeter fencing, floodlighting, etc.

Forest Neighbourhood Council has objected to this proposal, primarily on the grounds that the positioning will adversely affect residents. Horsham District Council has also forwarded its objection.

It is understood that the decision is being delegated to WSCC Planning Committee and, if this is the case, there should be the opportunity for several residents to attend and raise their objections within a time slot. For this to have the maximum effect, the objections need to be coordinated.

Forest Neighbourhood Council, through its social media, is suggesting it correlates residents’ names who would like to speak.
