Welcome to the new website for Charlwood Parish Council.
The Parish Council, the most local level of government, represents the interests of the Parish of Charlwood which covers the communities of Charlwood, Hookwood and Norwood Hill. The parish is the most easterly in Mole Valley with around 900 homes and a population of 2,326 according to the 2011 census.
CPC has a number of roles and responsibilities and the website is designed to make residents aware of what it is doing and current priorities. Access the website regularly for news updates as well as the latest planning applications that fall within the parish. Agendas and Minutes, policy statements, current reports and consultations will also be available here along with a host of information for residents including community groups, bus timetables etc.
The Parish Council is made up of eight Councillors in addition to the Chairperson Penny Shoubridge. It meets every month with the exception of August and December, usually on the third Monday of the month, starting at 8pm. The public are encouraged to attend Meetings and are given space to ask questions and make observations. The Parish Council also organises an Annual Parish Meeting in May at which residents are welcome and at which community groups can showcase their work and achievements during the year.
The Clerk holds a weekly surgery most Mondays at the Sports & Community Centre between 11-2pm though it is subject to change and updates are given via the Parish Council's Facebook page. To contact the Clerk, email firstname.lastname@example.org but be aware that because of his part-time hours a response may not be forthcoming immediately.
