Welcome to the Alfold Parish Council website

The Parish Council has produced this website in order to provide residents with information about the work and activities of the Council. We will provide details of our meetings, the issues affecting the village that will be debated and details about the many public consultations residents are being invited to respond to. We welcome your comments, concerns and suggestions about any issues affecting Alfold. If you have information, questions or comments please let us know by emailing clerk@alfoldparishcouncil.co.uk.


Alfold is a village in south west Surrey situated on the Surrey/Sussex border with a population of around 1050. The village is set in an area of remote rural wooded countryside with many footpaths, tracks and bridleways through Forestry Commission land and along the Wey and Arun Canal. The St Nicholas church in the centre of the village is one of the oldest in the area, some records claiming its existence as long ago as 1100. Adjacent to the church are the village stocks, recently renovated and considered by English Heritage to be an example of one of the oldest stocks remaining in the country. The village benefits from three pubs and a village shop, a recently renovated Village Hall, Sports Ground with two football pitches, cricket pitch and tennis courts.




URGENT CALL FOR FUNDS


POW and the Joint Parish Councils succeeded in our requests for the Secretary of State to call-in the planning application for 1800 houses at Dunsfold Aerodrome (Dunsfold New Town). This means that he will decide whether planning permission is granted after a full Public Inquiry. We now urgently need funds for the forthcoming Public Inquiry, which is scheduled to start on 18th July


As Rule 6 parties, POW and the Joint Parish Councils will be taking a leading role in the Public Inquiry to persuade a Planning Inspector and the Secretary of State that Dunsfold Park is the wrong place for the proposed development and this application should be refused. The Secretary of State’s decision will be final.


We will be the only Rule 6 parties arguing for the application to be refused, for which we have been advised we have a strong case and every chance of being successful.


In order to put up a robust case, we will need professional help to represent us:

 A traffic consultant;

 A planning consultant, and

 A QC


None of these come without significant cost. There is much work to be done and appointments must be

made now; we need funds to enable this. We will be running fund-raising events in the next few weeks and we hope you’ll support us generously.


In addition, any donation you can make now would be very gratefully received:

 via Pay Pal at www://powcampaign.org/

 by cheque, payable to Alfold Parish Council (Lock House Lodge, Knightons Lane, Dunsfold GU8 4NU)

 or by BACs transfer (email: clerk@alfoldparishcouncil.co.uk for details)

 For donations over £500, please email treasurer@powcampaign.org or clerk@alfoldparishcouncil.co.uk


Thank you!
