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.
Economy. A vibrant and successful town or village will have numerous facilities for residents and visitors to use. The Parish Council tries to protect and add to these facilities.
Safety. High on most surveys of concerns is the fear of crime, although in fact crime is lower here than in most other areas. Nevertheless, the Parish Council has a duty in law to consider how crime can be reduced locally.
Community. A sense of community is generally felt to be in everyone's interests. The Parish Council tries to identify how the community can be strengthened.
Environment. What sort of place is Warlingham? What impression do people have when they visit the area? The Parish Council looks for ways to ensure this impression is a positive one.
Public Transport. Ensure an acceptable standard and frequency of rail and bus services from and to Warlingham.
