    Another meeting (which I couldnt attend) , another new group of polite and and well intentioned sensible locals, but in 22 years of living here is the rub, I have never seen a single local road improvement or traffic improving initiative being delivered by SCC or influenced by anyone in SHCC.

    As noted elsewhere by RF, this huge potential development plan appears to have no sincere or serious traffic initiatives being proposed.

    SCCs only proposal of intent being to persuade Deepcut residents not to use their cars is gobsmackingly insulting and stupid. What do they want? A Deepcut Amish style village where we all revert to horse and carts and funny hats and moronic smiles?

    Without serious investment in cycle networks encompassing all local villages and schools, plus proper canal path improvements and necessary upgrading Deepcut Bridge, Upper Chobham and routes into Frimley , Camberley and Brookwood and reopening Brunswick Rd, then without this any massive housing development here, will end up in tears of frustration and an increase in road casualities.

    One only has to observe the horrid Deepcut village name signs which is about the only commitment that SHBC extracted from the developers of the Alma D development, to see how the developers and planners will just build the houses and then CUT AND RUN.

    I shall echo Gary’s comments…Well done and a big thank you for all members of the Deepcut Liason Group and the Deepcut Neighbourhood Forum for hosting the event to keep local residents informed of the latest plans regarding the proposed new development.

    Much appreciated.

    Thanks for organising this exhibition and keeping us informed so that we can make our feelings know every step of the way with this development and hope fully influence it positively.

    There is something very rotten in the county of Surrey. 1200 houses planned for Deepcut, 1500 on the Dera site outside Chobham and 300 for Brookwood which apparently adds up to about 13,000 additional traffic movements in mostly semi rural areas that do not have a sustainable road or public transport network. Anyone who knows these areas and drives through them regularly will recognise they are already overcrowded

    The fact that planners are even contemplating these applications and Surrey County Council is giving it’s blessing with no plans for any major investment in the transport infrastructure is at best gross misjudgement but is probably something much more sinister. There would seem to be a tacit agreement between local government and the MOD to bring funds into central government coffers at whatever the cost to these areas.

    This is happening right under Michael Gove’s nose. There needs to be a public inquiry right now into what is happening in North Surrey at the moment because the residents are not being served well or listened to at all.

    Great to see so many local residents in attendance, a very worthwhile event.
    Thank you.
    Regards, Gary Baxter, Deepcut resident.
