Thank you for visiting the website for Normandy Parish Council

The Parish Council is here to represent the interests and views of the residents of the village, in doing so we aim to improve the lives of local people, enhance our surroundings and protect our environment.

Your councillors have been elected to deliver services that meet the needs of the communities that live in our village, to do this effectively we need to hear from you and be informed about your priorities. Please visit the contact us page to get in touch and help shape plans for the future of our village.

Your Councillors (eight of whom were elected in May 2021) are all keen to start work that will enhance our village and the lives of people who live here however we also recognise that there are some basics that we need to get right first. With this in mind we have committed that during 2021/22 we will focus on establishing transparent processes and practices that provide value for money. This includes reviewing contracts, financial commitments, procurement processes, IT systems and council assets. The aim is, that by having efficient processes and practices in place, Councillors will be able to work more effectively and openly on behalf of, and in conjunction with residents.

Once our processes have been reviewed we will be running a survey to understand what residents of Normandy would like the Parish Council to focus on. We are looking forward to hearing your views and starting some exciting new projects.

We intend to keep you informed in several ways:

  • We will continue, at least for the time being, to produce and distribute “The Villager” on a quarterly basis (we’ll seek feedback on whether you would like it to continue and whether it is good value for money). We will also increase the use of social media, making best use of the available tools including continuing the use of Nextdoor.
  • Monthly meetings in person can now resume, subject to Covid restrictions, but we are still resolving their location as we plan to move these to a Thursday evening to reduce clashes with other council meetings. Watch out for further announcements.
  • It will also be possible for you to call in to the Parish Meetings, using Zoom or an equivalent service. We remain keen to meet you face to face but recognise that it’s not always easy due to mobility or other commitments.

If you have any queries or questions, please contact the Parish Clerk – clerk@normandyparishcouncil.gov.uk

Future Events in the Village

Should you wish to hold or host an event in and around the Village and need the assistance of the Parish Council, we would be grateful if you could please give 2 to 3 months notice in advance.

New Parish Office from 22 July

Every Friday the Clerk will taking up residency at Normandy Village Hall. Residents are encouraged to come along to discuss any issues or to pop in to introduce yourselves. Typically this will be in the upstairs meeting room but on the last Friday of the month it will down in the small hall, to enable access for anyone with mobility issues.

Councillors will occasionally be in attendance too.

We look forward to meeting you!

Report-It

Not every accident or incident is serious enough to call the Police …but it may have an overall impact on the safety of our village.

There are many incidents that happen every day around Normandy that go unreported. If they were, they may add up to a possible long term issue that needs to be addressed.

The NPC have set up this online incident log to record evidence that could be used to submit a request to the relevant authority to get something done. Because without any evidence nothing will be!

These incidents may be related to:

Traffic (road accidents, near misses, poor or aggressive driving, persistent bad parking that could be dangerous to pedestrians etc)

Crime (burglary, theft, warnings, unwanted doorstep visitors etc)

Anti-social behaviour (aggressive behaviour, casual litter, fly-tipping etc)

Other (property violations, broken playground equipment, damaged fencing, damaged trees etc)

Note that this is NOT an alternative process for reporting serious incidents to the Police, Guildford Borough Council etc - please contact them as you would normally do.
