WHAT'S NEW !

Berkeley Homes/Howard of Effingham Joint Venture

Please click here to view preliminary comments sent by the Parish Council to Guildford Borough Council, Without Prejudice, on housing provision, design requirements and Section 106 contributions on for any future planning applications.    

The Parish Council is chairing a liaison group to discuss issues and proposals regarding the proposed joint venture between Berkeley Homes and the Howard of Effingham School to allow consideration and mitigation of any possible issues and areas of concern and to input to any Section 106 proposals on behalf of the village. These discussions are Without Prejudice, meaning that all discussions taking place are separate from any Parish Council assessment of future planning applications and will have no impact on the decision of the Parish Council regarding an application. Representation from GBC Planning department attends all meetings and all meeting minutes are publically.

Please click here to view the minutes from the first HoE Liaison Group meeting at 3 June 2014, here for the minutes at 20 June 2014 and here for 16 July 2014.

EFFINGHAM VILLAGE PLAN
 

As announced in the last Chairman’s Report, Effingham Parish Council has embarked on an exciting project to plan the future of the village, which will need residents’ help. This is explained here.
Our first step was to register successfully the parish as a Neighbourhood Area with Guildford Borough Council. The application can be viewed here and here.

A form on which you can write your comments to hand in at Effingham Parish Room or GBC is here.

A summary of the details of what the Village Plan will include, and the different stages of putting it together can be viewed here.
A separate website has been set up specifically to cover the evolving Village Plan.

-------------------- ---------------------------------------

Welcome to our website

We want to help you better understand what the Parish Council is, how it works, and what it does in the village. We also hope it will be a useful point of contact for residents who want to keep in touch with each other.

The galleon used as this website's logo is the emblem of both the Parish Council and the village. It is the Ark Royal, the flagship of the English fleet in which Lord Howard of Effingham successfully faced the Spanish Armada in 1588. Sir Walter Raleigh had the ship built at Deptford in 1587 for his own use, but before launch she was purchased by Queen Elizabeth I for £5,000. Today’s HMS Ark Royal, 5th to bear the name, is still flagship of the ‘Senior Service’ – the navy. An emblem to live up to!
