Notes from Council meeting in May 2022

COMPTONS LANE IMPROVEMENTS

These include two bus lay-bys, pedestrian crossings and closing of the service road during school times. Residents are invited to express their views on the proposed improvements online https://yourvoice.westsussex.gov.uk/comptonslane-horsham.

BLUEPRINT – NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN

Horsham District Council is suggesting that the water neutrality issue will shortly be resolved and the Referendum will take place before the end of this year.

20's PLENTY for Us

Work is progressing on this Proposal which has the backing of Forest Neighbourhood Council.

RIVERSIDE WALK

This took place on 14th May and more than 200 people started the Walk from Horsham Rugby Club. Again, it was a successful venture.

PLANNING – WE BUY ANY CAR DC/21/2766

The retrospective application for this Company to continue using the Horsham Railway Car Park for its business, was discussed at Planning Committee level and was refused. Forest Neighbourhood Council has regularly objected to this use of part of the car park.

QUEEN STREET

Residents are extremely concerned about bicycles and cars that park on HDC land in front of some shops in Queen Street. This is an issue that is being widely discussed with a view to finding some form of solution.

ST. LEONARD’S ROAD

Forest Neighbourhood Council is constantly referring the poor surface state of St. Leonard’s Road to WSCC Highways. Potholes that reached intervention levels, have been repaired. It seems that as soon as one hole is fixed, another appears!
