The Aim of The Parish 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.
General Data Protection Regulations
Like other organisations in the UK, Pirbright Parish Council is required to observe the new regulations that came into force in May 2018. You can see more about this on the Governance page.
