News from Ockham Parish Council November 2023

  • We were delighted to be joined by two local police officers at our November Parish Council meeting. The police officers were interested to hear about life in Ockham. They urge everyone to report all crime even if you feel that the matter is minor. Issues to report might include bike theft, antisocial behaviour, parking on double yellow lines etc.  The best way to report a non urgent crime or suspicious activity is by calling 101 or going by online or via their facebook livechat


  • The Inquiry for the FWA is ongoing (until 1st December) and OPC/WAG/RHS continue to be well represented by our experts. We are still fundraising towards the target of £200,000 needed to help pay for all the professional expert help required. A significant shortfall remains so if you are able to donate, it would be very much appreciated. All donations of any amount, from a few pounds upwards all help enormously. Account name: Wisley Airfield Action Group, sort code: 20 35 35, account number: 10574287 (or by cheque delivered to Helen Jefferies, Alms Heath Cottage). Very many thanks for all donations to date.


  • There is a planning application for up to 200 dwellings for the Land East and West of Hatch Lane, Ockham GU23 6NU. Application no: 23/P/01607.  This is the third ‘parcel’ of land that makes up Allocation A35 on the FWA. OPC are working on an objection letter and we will share some objection points very soon via OHRA mailing list and VAWNT.  Please look out for this and object.  This application relies heavily on the infrastructure delivery for the Taylor Wimpey part of FWA and we have stated to GBC that we believe the application is premature and we encourage you to state this in your objections.



  • OPC are still looking for someone to lead in a local cross parish Climate Action Network group. Are you able to help?  If you would like further details, please contact our clerk, Alyson
