Notes from Council meeting in April 2022
FOREST NC MEETINGS
This was the first Meeting held in Salvation Army Hall since March 2020. Councillors appreciate that not everyone is comfortable in a “hall” environment.
We may hold alternate virtual meetings in the next months and members of the public are welcome to attend in either setting.
HORSHAM GREEN SPACES
You may be aware of correspondence relating to privately owned green spaces being sold for future development in Horsham and/or possible purchase of green space by residents.
Forest NC is in contact with both Horsham Green Spaces and Helen Peacock, HDC Lead on “Wilder Horsham”; Helen Peacock is keen to protect the green infrastructure, especially around The Riverside Walk.
20's PLENTY for Us
Forest NC approved a Motion to support the 20’s Plenty Horsham and 20’s Plenty for West Sussex campaigns and their aim to lower residential speed limits to improve road safety, improve air quality and encourage active travel.
THE BIG CONVERSATION
This is an opportunity to meet the Leader of Horsham District Council and some of his Cabinet and to hear and discuss views on Environmental and Planning issues in the District. Cllr Jonathan Chowen and Horsham District Council’s Chief Executive invite you to register your place at one of three venues across Horsham District.
