The Parish Council is formed of eleven Parish Councillors, elected every four years (last election - May 5th 2016), six from the east ward and five from the west ward. The Councillors are unsalaried. The Council is administered by the Parish Clerk.
The Parish Council is funded by a precept which is collected as part of your overall council tax. Tandridge collects all council tax on behalf of Surrey County Council, Surrey Police and Crime Commissioner and the Parish Council. In 2016/17, Tandridge District Council will keep just under 11.7% (£198.62 – £5 more than in 2015/16) of a band D property charge and give Surrey County Council 74.5% (£1,268.28), Surrey Police & Crime Commissioner 12.9% (£220.19) and Warlingham Parish Council 0.9% (£14.74 – the same as in 2015/16 at just over 28 pence per week). Warlingham Parish Council’s precept of £14.74 for a Band D property is the 4th lowest of the 21 Parish Councils funded by a precept in Tandridge.
The purpose of Warlingham Parish Council is to help make Warlingham a better place to live in.
More specifically, there are five areas which the Parish Council aims to help improve.
