Michael Gove is continuing to press for step-free access to be installed at Ash Vale Station, as the current access at the station is difficult for less-able people, such as the elderly, and completely impossible for those in a wheelchair.
Many local residents have expressed concerns about the number of housing developments in the Ash and Tongham area, and the lack of infrastructure to cope with an inevitable increase in population and the number of cars on the already congested roads.
Proposals were put forward to develop Fairoaks Airport into a Garden Village of 1,500 homes. Local residents fear the impact it would have on the neighbouring village of Chobham, which already suffers from congested traffic.
Local residents are campaigning against the prospect of 4-way traffic lights being installed on the Green as a consequence of the significant housing development coming to Deepcut. They maintain that if traffic lights are installed the whole character of the village Green will be altered.
