Notes from Council meeting in January 2022


Forest Neighbourhood Councillors are pleased with the response to the Newsletter although understands some residents have still not received their copy. Please let us know if this is the case for your household.

The newsletter can also be seen on the News page of this website.


The newly appointed Neighbourhood Warden, Charles (Charlie) Nell, will commence duties on 14th February. He will work alongside Neighbourhood Warden, Maria Collenso who is already known in this neighbourhood.


A retrospective Planning Application DC/21/2766 has been placed, for the erection of a “We Buy Any Car Sales kiosk with associated operation to existing car park”

The Company has been trading in Station Road car park for some time. FNC is keen to hear resident’s views about this siting.


WSCC first planning application WSCC/047/21 has been withdrawn due to the significant number of negative comments.

A revised plan is being prepared and will follow the same consultation procedure. When further information is known, this will be posted on Forest Neighbourhood Council’s website and Facebook page.


WSCC is looking to change the whole system and how it is organised.

However, the current Horsham CPZ review is already at planning stage and WSCC has confirmed it will go ahead.

Changes may be considered in the Forest neighbourhood by expanding the roads outwards from the current zone border. Residents will be able to have their say about any proposals.
