Change of Date to September Parish Council Meeting
Please note that the Parish Council meeting in September will take place on Monday 4th (not Tuesday5th).
Village Design Statement - DRAFT Addendum
In 2016-17 a small group of residents took on the task of updating Thursley's Village Design Statement which was adopted by Waverley Borough Council as a material planning consideration in 2009. It was found that very little of the content needed amending but that Thursley's two main concerns needed amplifying, namely the effect of increased traffic on our lanes due to the Hindhead Tunnel opening in 2011 as well as the effect of an increase in liveries in the parish on village street life. The DRAFT addendum is available here for your comment.

Parish Council Email Communications
Unfortunately due to an IT issue, the email contact information for the Parish Council distribution list has been lost. Please note that these details have been lost electronically due to a hardware malfunction, not physically so there is no cause for concern that the details can be accessed by third parties.
So that the Parish Council may continue to provide you with information regarding activities and other points of interest in the parish, we would like to build a new list of people who would like to receive updates.
If you would like to be included on the Parish Council email distribution list to receive Parish updates and information, please could you send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org confirming that you wish to receive future notifications.
By sending an email to this address, the Clerk will add you onto the distribution list that will be used for Parish Council notifications only. It will not be used for any other purpose or shared with third parties. Emails will be sent as BCC so your details will not be visible to other people receiving the information.
Please note that even if you have previously received updates from the Parish Council, you do need to re-register for inclusion on the new list.

The Housing Needs Survey report which was undertaken by Surrey Community Action and presented at the Annual Assembly meeting is available here.
