The Parish Council is very active and provides a focus for the community. Council meetings are normally held every 4 weeks on a Tuesday evening in the village hall starting at 7.30pm or on a Thursday evening for planning meetings, members of the public are very welcome and have the opportunity to ask questions or raise relevant issues. Meeting dates are listed on the calendar on this website and the agenda is posted on the village notice boards. A full set of minutes from the latest meetings can be viewed by following the link on the left.
What does the Parish Council do?
The Parish Council is a statutory authority within the Local Government Framework influencing, where necessary, issues affecting higher level County and District/Borough Authorities. In the case of Alfold Parish Council, this means Surrey County Council and Waverley Borough Council. You will have noticed in your Council Tax demand that you make a small contribution each year towards Parish Council spending. That money is used by the Parish Council to provide services in the village including:
- maintenance of the Jubilee Pond
- maintenance of the Common
- maintenance of the Sports Ground and recreation area
- maintenance of the Cemetery
- comments to the Waverley BC Planning Committee on planning applications
- influencing decisions taken at district or county level which affect the village
