In this weeks eNewsletter

Hello <<First Name>>

I am a little late getting out this eNewsletter which I hope you will forgive me for as I am actually on holiday.

Under normal circumstances, the girls and I would be abroad somewhere relaxing by a pool but because of COVID, we decided not to travel this year.

Instead, I am doing jobs around the house that I have been putting off for literally years. My garage, for instance, was a dumping ground for goodness knows what is now in great shape and our home office has been decorated.

That was week one of our holidays, next week we plan to do some fun stuff and as it is quiet from a council point of view, I probably will not send out a newsletter next week.

I hope you are managing to enjoy some downtime this summer.

65 Homes at Frimhurst Farm

One of the items that consistently gets the most clicks on my weekly email updates is the planning applications list.

I don't usually post as a matter of routine about individual applications in these newsletters except when I think larger applications may slip past residents notice. In that case, ill try to raise awareness so that residents can have an opportunity to make a representation to the council in support or against the proposals.

The application is as follows:
  • Application Number: 21/0769/FFU
  • Address: Frimhurst Farm Deepcut Bridge Road Deepcut Camberley Surrey GU16 6RF
  • Proposal: Erection of a residential development of 65 dwellings along with associated estate roads and accesses onto Deepcut Bridge Road, car parking, bin stores and external landscaping following the demolition of all existing buildings.
This site has quite a chequered history and has certainly kept council enforcement officers busy over the years. Frimhurst Farm Industrial Estate has not had a healthy relationship with its neighbours either, which is disappointing. I don't think it would have taken much for them to mitigate their activities to lessen the impact on their neighbours.

For this reason, I think there will be mixed feelings about this proposal.

There will be highways concerns in respect of entry and egress to the site, which I share. Parking provision will also be a concern. I also think there will also be some ecological concerns.

It is essential that whatever your views are, in support or against this development, you make those views known by making a representation to the council. Details of how to do that can be found here:

Making your views known to me as the local councillor for Deepcut would also be helpful, so when the planning applications committee determines this application, I can make sure I consider your views when making any of my representations.

Helping Hands starts up again

Helping Hands was formed 20 years ago and is a voluntary group providing a transport service for the residents of Mytchett, Deepcut and Frimley Green. Due to the Covid Pandemic, they had to close 12 months ago but the great news is that they are restarting from 1st June.

They will be delighted to hear from anyone who requires help to get to a medical appointment ie. Doctors, Hospital, Dentist, Chiropodists etc. 

In order to protect both their clients and their volunteer's normal Covid precautions will be taken but this will all be explained when you call.

Ring them on 07752 420470 between 10am - midday Monday to Friday giving them 2/3 days notice and they will be pleased to help you.

There is no fee, just a small donation to cover their costs would be appreciated.

Helping Hands are always looking for new volunteers whether it's handling the phone calls or driving. As a driver, you would use your own vehicle but expenses would be paid. Unlike some voluntary jobs, you are under no obligation as to how much time you give. It would be up to you. Call David on 01252 675348 if you are interested in volunteering.

Camberley Car Show Success

After what has been a very difficult year for local businesses it was so good to see the Camberley Car Show so well supported by the community and the town centre so busy.

I was working at the event providing media support but that does not mean I did not get to enjoy the amazing cars on display.

A huge congratulations to the Collectively Camberley team and a small army of volunteers who assisted in making the Camberley Car Show a fun safe event

There is a video of the event available on the #LoveCamberley Facebook page here.

Mytchett Family Fun Day

The Mytchett Centre family fun day is back. Monday 30th August from 12 until 4 pm. Lots of stalls, games, live music, food and drink - fun for all the family.

There's a fun dog show too, so if you have a dog that looks like its owner, a pampered pooch or a scruffy mongrel, bring them along!

Free entry, car parking is £1 per vehicle. All proceeds go to the Mytchett Community Association.
As always I want to hear from you if you have anything you would like to discuss with me of a local nature.

Best wishes
