Welcome to Whyteleafe Village Council’s website. You will see references to “parish” and we were called Whyteleafe Parish Council until 2011 when we decided on a change of name. You’ll find information on this website about our name change, what’s on and the Council’s aims and priorities for making Whyteleafe a better place to live and work.
The Council is funded by you, the Council Tax payer, and we want to make sure you have your say - come along to the monthly meeting, contact councillors and the clerk by phone or email, better still get involved either as a councillor or as part of a working group.
As central government and regional Councils trim their budgets, local communities are encouraged to take on greater responsibilities which means that there are great challenges and opportunities ahead.
Surrey County Council (SCC) is planning to implement a switch-off of street lights on most residential roads across Tandridge, including Whyteleafe, between midnight and 5am each day.
For further information please visit the SCC website at https://www.surreycc.gov.uk/roads-and-transport/road-maintenance-and-cleaning/street-lights-traffic-signals-and-signs/part-night-street-lighting/part-night-street-lighting-works-timetable We expect this switching-off of street lights to start in March 2017.
If you think that specific roads should be reviewed, and the decision overturned where you live, please let SCC know. The full appeal process can be found here https://www.surreycc.gov.uk/roads-and-transport/road-maintenance-and-cleaning/street-lights-traffic-signals-and-signs/part-night-street-lighting/reviews-process-for-part-night-lighting
You can also email Whyteleafe Village Council so that we are aware of your concerns too.
One of the many activities of the Village Council is to provide Tandridge District Council (TDC) with comments and feedback on local planning issues. Each month, the Council will typically have a number of new planning applications to consider as part of TDC's statutory consultation process.
