Following Warlingham's Parish Plan, Warlingham Parish Council set up five projects in order to follow up some of the Plan's most important suggestions.
Open Spaces. A large part of Warlingham is open space and this project aims to both safeguard those areas and also to identify ways of enhancing their quality.
Development Guidelines. Although Warlingham is a most attractive place, it is not possible to be confident it will remain so given the pressures of development. This project is designed to specify advice which will encourage development to be along favourable lines.
The Green. The heart of Warlingham is its Green, which is much valued by local residents. This project seeks ways to encourage the vitality of activity, especially commercial activity, around The Green in order to foster its well-being. Lighting for the War Memorial and for the flower beds has been installed, along with electricity sockets to avoid the need for the use of generators when events are held there.
Entry Signs. Unlike many towns and villages, Warlingham is not completely surrounded by open country. So its boundaries and therefore its identity are not clearly apparent. This project is overseeing the introduction of signs on the main road entrances to Warlingham which, it is hoped, will add to an increased sense of identity. In 2010 the first two signs were installed, both on the Limpsfield Road, one at the Hamsey Green end, the other at the Hare and Hounds (now Amano) end.
Walking Map. Two maps showing suggested walks round and through Warlingham have now been completed. One map has been developed with wheelchair and pushchair users in mind. These maps can be obtained from our community library and the railway station ticket office atrium.
