Tree Protection Orders (TPOs) in the village

One of our Parish Councillors is putting red tags on some trees in the village to mark those with Tree Protection Orders (TPOs). The Parish Council checks on all the trees in the village with TPOs once a year and has started this process to label all trees with a TPO to raise awareness of those which are protected in this way.

Call for Speedwatch Volunteers!

Anyone concerned about speeding traffic in the village may want to consider joining West Horsley's Speedwatch group and make a difference. Led by Chris Tailby, the 12-strong group regularly monitor vehicle speeds across the village, supported by the Police. If you are interested, please contact Chris on Thank you!!


Overgrown hedges  

Responsibility to cut back the hedges lies with individual householders - WHPC's Footpaths group walks the village each summer and sends a letter to any householders whose hedges need cutting back. Failure to act on this means we can involve Surrey County Council, who can cut hedges back and charge the householder if necessary.

Footpaths in the village - these are the responsibility of Surrey County Council to maintain and cut back. You can email SCC on

Flytipping can be reported on
