Welcome to the community web-site of Capel Parish Council (CPC), the largest civil parish by population and area in Mole Valley consisting of three wards namely Beare Green, Capel and Coldharbour. This map shows the parish outlined in red with the ward boundaries delineated in blue.
CPC is responsible for the maintenance and insurance of a large portfolio of assets including buildings, sports grounds and childrens' playgrounds, notice boards, allotments and many parcels of public land. It is a consultee on all planning applications for properties within the parish and has a Neighbourhood Development Plan in place. Capel and Coldharbour village centres were designated as conservation areas in 1975.
CPC is funded by an annual precept of currently £92,500 collected by Mole Valley District Council as a percentage of the council tax charge, the parish portion being between £36.78 and £110.34 per annum depending on the property band A to H. CPC also receives an annual concurrent grant from the Council Tax Grant Scheme of £10,308. This link shows all the parish precepts for Mole Valley.
