WELCOME TO THE WEBSITE OF
PIRBRIGHT PARISH COUNCIL
Pirbright Parish, in the borough of Guildford, has an area of some 1902 hectares (4711 acres), with a total population of 3691 (census 2011). 1493 of the population live in the village with the remainder living in outlying settlements and in the military area to the north of the railway.
The village is almost entirely surrounded by heathland, much of it owned and used by the MoD.
Transport links include an hourly bus service to the nearby towns of Guildford and Woking, or train from the nearby village of Brookwood. There is a general store and playgroup in the military area, but recent years have seen the loss of shops, including the post office and newsagent, in the village centre.
Next month sees the launch of a new village diary to run concurrently here and on the St Michael & All Angels Church website, but you can preview it this month by clicking on our Parish Activities page.
It will enable forward planning and hopefully avoid clashes of dates for special events through the year, including the Scarecrow festival, Harvest and Twinning suppers, Pirbright Players performances, the annual Flower Show and many more. All parish clubs, societies and organisations are welcome to submit their entries, providing the name of the organising group, the event, its date and location, to Lindsay at the Parish Shop via the Parish Council’s usual email address (see below) or via the feedback page on this website.
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.
Meetings of the Council and its committees are open to the public (see notice boards and website for dates and agendas). An Annual Parish Meeting is held in April for all residents.
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.
You can contact the Parish Clerk at the Parish Shop, The Green, Pirbright, Woking GU24 0JT. Telephone number: 01483 476432, email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Parish Shop is open to the public on Monday and Thursday mornings, 10am - 1pm.
Talk Shop, when you can meet parish councillors and the borough and county councillors is on the first Monday of each month at 7.30pm.
