Local elections 2019
Nominations for election of seven members to serve on the Parish Council for its new term were submitted in April and all were elected without a contested poll. Mike Hobbs stood down after 8 years of service on the Council, and we welcome Cllr Max Godfree.
Cllr Gordon Jackson was re-elected as ward member to Guildford Borough Council.
It is the aim of Pirbright Parish Council to promote the health, vitality and well being of the community within the Parish, to protect and enhance the environment of our village, the countryside in which we are situated and the quality of life for our residents and visitors. The Parish Council aims through our work to encourage community engagement, promote inclusion and support the activities, life chances and aspirations of our community.
We do this by setting objectives that address planning, transport, the environment & community initiatives and through our general work.
The Parish Council acts as a liaison between the parish and borough and county councils and also submits an opinion on all planning applications in the parish to Guildford Borough Planning Department.
The work of the Parish Council is funded by a council tax precept (supplement), from which the village green, its footpaths, car parks, trees, children's playground and the war memorial are maintained.
