Caterham Valley Parish Council

As a Parish Council, we are the level of government that is closest to the community.

The most common topics that we get involved with are planning matters and campaigning for and delivering better services and facilities.

We have only limited powers to make decisions ourselves, but we are able to negotiate with, and influence organisations that do make the final decisions, and those organisations know that as your Parish Council, we can best reflect how a community feels about something and our views are taken seriously.

Caterham Valley Parish Council meets at the Caterham Valley Library, Stafford Road. Please see calendar or noticeboards for time of meetings. All meetings start with an opportunity for public questions.

Tandridge District Council

Tandridge DC consults us on every planning application in the Parish, although we do not normally comment on small applications which only affect the immediate neighbours. If you want us to take your views into account on any application, please contact the Clerk in good time before our meeting on the second Wednesday of each month.

Planning Committee

The Parish Council Planning Committee plays a crucial role in providing democratic and transparent decisions on sometimes controversial issues.

The committee considers applications at its meetings and makes representations to Tandridge and to Surrey. The Planning Committee also considers major local and regional planning issues, and planning policy matters.
