The Parish has approximately 1000 residents and 400 properties.
The Council has been in existence since 1894 and is therefore one of
the oldest civil parishes. There are seven members on the Council, elected for a 4-year term to represent the whole village. Council meetings are usually held on the third Wednesday of the months of January, March, May, July, September, and November in Pucks Oak Barn, commencing at 7.00 pm. Members of the public are welcome to attend meetings and may address the Council if time allows and on the invitation of the Chairman.
The Councillors for Compton are very active within the community and can be contacted via the Clerk to the Council.
Parish Council Responsibilities
Responsibilities for local services are divided between Surrey County Council for education, public transport, highways and police—and Guildford Borough Council for housing, planning, public health, and waste collection to name but a few.
The Parish Council is responsible for representing the views of parish residents on any local issue. In particular, it makes a contribution to:
Local planning applications and enforcement.
Transport, including the state of the highways and traffic calming.
Footpaths and other rights of way.
Village environment issues, drainage systems and grass cutting.
The Parish Council has a primary responsibility for the recreation ground and playground, the allotments, bus shelters and the Watts Chapel and Cemetery, where it acts as the burial authority.
