What We Do

The Parish Council is responsible for the following facilities:

  • children’s playgrounds
  • bus shelters
  • street lighting in the three villages
  • allotments
  • Shalford cemetery and the cemetery chapel
  • Brookswood sports field in Chilworth
  • village signs
  • noticeboards
  • benches on the Common

The Parish Council also works very hard with Guildford BC and Surrey CC and adjoining parish councils on matters to do with protecting and improving the parish, influencing decisions on development, traffic and transport and comments on all planning applications made within the parish.

The Council also tries to support the work of local organisations wherever possible and gives grants to support this work where appropriate. The Council acts as trustee for the Smith’s Charity within the parish which gives grants to support the less well off or those in particular need . A member of the Parish Council sits on the Management committee of Shalford Village Hall.
