Limpsfield Parish Council is a democratically elected authority given legal powers to run certain local facilities and services.
Parish councillors are elected to represent the best interests of their local residents, and parish councils need funds to support their activities. These funds are raised by adding an extra cost known as a "precept" to each householder's Council Tax bill.
The Parish Clerk is employed to act in legal and administrative matters and as a point of contact. Tandridge District Council has to consult Limpsfield Parish Council on all local planning issues, appeals, and inquiries where they affect the parish.
Parish Councils may get involved in providing, maintaining and protecting areas such as: allotments, churchyards and cemeteries, open spaces and playing fields, lighting, litter control, dog-fouling, ponds, footpaths, roadside verges, seats and shelters as well as providing facilities for: entertainment, arts & crafts, public halls for social recreations or athletic pursuits, swimming pools and public toilets. Parish councils can also spend money outside these areas for any purpose considered to be of overall benefit for the area and its residents.
