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 including public buildings, sports grounds, childrens' playgrounds, notice boards, allotments and many parcels of public or common land. It is a consultee for 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.
