WELCOME to the website for Chobham Parish Council and the Chobham Recreation Ground Charitable Trust.
You will find information here about the community of Chobham and Valley End and the work of the Council and the Trust in looking after the village and its amenities.
Chobham people are proud of history of the village and its continuing sense of community. Chobham was mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086 and its story long predates that. Today we are part of the modern borough of Surrey Heath.
There are nine elected parish councillors. Their monthly council meeting and committee meetings usually take place in the Parish Pavilion at the Recreation Ground and are open to the public.
LOCAL ELECTIONS to be held on 2nd May 2019
Notice of election - Chobham Parish Council
Notice of election - Surrey Heath Borough Council
TRAVELLERS AT CHOBHAM RECREATION GROUND
The travellers were evicted from Chobham Recreation Ground at 4.00pm on 12th March 2019. Surrey Heath Borough Council, acting on behalf of Chobham Parish Council, secured an eviction notice on the morning of 12th March. The travellers left very little rubbish which they had bagged up and Cllr Coombs, Chairman of the Parish Council cleaned up the remaining waste. The Parish Council together with Surrey County Councillor Mike Goodman and Surrey Highways Officers are looking at ways of narrowing the entrance to the recreation ground to prevent caravans from entering. This is not a straight forward task as the Thames Water pumping station is located within the Recreation Ground and needs access for their large pumping lorries.
PLAYGROUND OPEN AT CHOBHAM RECREATION GROUND
The playground is now open, after being shut since Tuesday when four bags of rubble were found to have been dumped there. The rubble has been cleared away and there was no damage to the play equipment.
