Capel Parish Council (CPC) is the largest parish by population and area in Mole Valley and it consists of three wards namely Beare Green, Capel and Coldharbour. This map shows the parish outlined in red with the ward boundaries delineated in blue.
CPC is responsible for the maintenance and insurance of many assets including public buildings, childrens' playgrounds and parcels of common land in all three wards. It is a consultee on all planning applications for the parish and has a Neighbourhood Development Plan in place. Capel and Coldharbour village centres were designated as conservation areas in 1975.
CPC is funded by an annual precept of currently £97,135 collected by Mole Valley District Council as part of the council tax charge set between £38.70 and £116.10 per household per annum depending on the property band A to H. CPC also receives an annual concurrent grant from the Council Tax Grant Scheme of £9,733. This link shows all the parish precepts for Mole Valley.
