Travellers on Bisley Green
.On the 4th July 2013 there was an incursion of around 14 caravans on the Green. Thanks should go to the local residents who quickly reported the arrival of the travellers and the Parish Council, Surrey County Council, Surrey Heath Borough Council and the Police for their prompt action in resolving this issue. In particular, we would like to thank David Mansfield (our Borough Councillor) who has been involved in negotiations and has kept me informed. As you will now have noticed the Parish Council have installed Posts all along the A322 and will now be looking to protect the Sports Ground.
Just a reminder to everyone to dial 101 if they see any suspicious activity in the village.
.Gritting of Bisley Roads and provision of Grit Boxes
In previous years Several residents have complained
about the icy conditions of our residential roads. For Surrey County council's
Policy take a look at this link on Surrey CC website:
It is under Roads and Transport> Road Maintenance and Cleaning> Ice and Snow
Advice if you can't use the links.
They give very comprehensive information on their provisions for Snow & Ice. There is also a map showing the routes they prioritize for salting and info on grit bins.
Increase in Flights at Farnborough Airport
TAG aviation, the airport operator for Farnborough International Airport have applied to increase their activity from 5000 to 8,900 flights at Weekends and Bank holidays, and from 28,000 to 50,000 overall. As reported in the local press it was expected that this would be given the go-ahead but at the Planning Control Meeting for Rushmoor Borough Council on the 11th November the application was rejected.
TAG Aviation has appealed this decision to the Government Planning Inspector and the appeal has been granted. More information at www.gethampshire.co.uk/news/s/2087392_breaking_news_airport_wins_flights_appeal
This is undoubtedly very disappointing news as it is now unlikely that Rushmoor Borough Council will want to appeal this decision any further.
Development of Bisley Office Machinery Site
This Year after representation from your committee and Bisley parish Council the application to use Snowdrop Way to access this new housing development of around 112 houses was rejected. The entrance is now via the current entrance on Queen's Road. The site began to demolish in August/September 2015 and houses are already for sale in the development.
