Every four years the Parish Council has an election where the Parish decides on the Councillors for the Parish Council.
What do councillors do? Planning, Community projects, aviation matters, cemetery involvement and community matters. It is an engaging and you can make a difference to Nutfield by getting involved.
The formal election will take place on the 2nd May this year if we have enough people step forward for nomination – if we have 9 people or less then no election will take place and those people will be our Parish Councillors. Nutfield Parish Council have 9 vacancies

Delivery of paperwork – from Monday 25th March to 4pm Wednesday 3rd April – you must take the paperwork in by hand, and if you wish to talk to someone about your application then you can book a meeting in with a member of Tandridge District Council during those dates to make sure your application is correct.
