Welcome to the Deepcut Neighbourhood Forum website. Under the Localism Act, neighbourhood planning allows people to come together and say where they think new houses, businesses and shops should go - and what they should look like. Neighbourhood forums are community groups that are designated to take forward neighbourhood planning in areas without parishes – like Deepcut. The DNF has been recognised by Surrey Heath Borough Council as your forum and, with your help, we are working on producing a plan that will ensure that Deepcut remains the kind of village that we all want to live and work in.
First DNF Community Meeting
Michael Gove, MP, joined committee members of the DNF at the first public meeting with residents and companies from Deepcut at the Deepcut Village Centre on Saturday 12th September. Nearly 70 residents and businesses heard presentations from Michael Gove MP, DNF Committee members, Councillor Paul Deach and Studio Hive, (representing the developers and DIO) giving them an update on the development, its impact on Deepcut and why the creation of a Neighbourhood Plan was so important to ensure that Deepcut remains a place where we all want to live and work in.
It also provided the perfect opportunity to ask residents for their views in terms of what issues were important to them – and these views were collected via a feedback form. If you were unable to attend but want your views taking into consideration – please fill in our on line feedback form below - thank you.
If you can also give up just a few hours a month to help the DNF in its work to create a Neighbourhood Plan, please also let us know on this form. We really do need your help and support to make this Neighbourhood Plan happen.
Why is a Neighbourhood Plan important?
Since the DNF was officially recognised by the Surrey Heath Borough Council and government bodies, the DNF Committee has been working tirelessly on your behalf.
Now the years of DNF Committee work needs to change to become a “Community Initiative”.
The Deepcut Neighbourhood Plan cannot continue without significant community involvement.
Do you agree with the DNF Committee that the mission is to secure approval for, and
implementation of, a Neighbourhood Plan that protects and enhances Deepcut’s landscape, its village character, and the residents’ quality of life?
We need your help. A Neighbourhood Plan MUST reflect everyone’s view point. Without your input, and help, we won’t be able to complete the Plan.
The DNF Committee represents your interests:
The DNF’s vision is to actively improve Deepcut while still retaining our rural village feel and its heath land, woodland and open spaces. We want to build a vibrant and exciting community spirit with all of us playing an active part in protecting and enjoying, the village’s bio-diversity, wildlife, trees, flora and fauna. Do you support this Vision?
We believe that you want to keep Deepcut separate from the surrounding urban areas. That you do NOT want to become part of the urban expansion of Camberley – which means protecting and safe-guarding our countryside. But we believe that you DO want to establish closer links with the major towns through the development of sustainable, environmentally friendly, walking and cycling networks and the provision of greater Public Transport.
We want Deepcut to be a great place to live and work – which means our Plan will look at ways to increase business opportunities within our community - including improved home working capabilities.
We want more local essential services including Medical, Educational, and Financial along with the provision of improved recreational and community facilities. In many of these cases this will involve close co-operation with those responsible for the redevelopment of the PRB site.
