Welcome To Albury

There is one day left to register any response to the Woodhill Sandpit proposal outlined below. Click here for an update from the residents group (unaffiliated to the Parish Council).

Albury Parish Council has considered the proposed infill of the Woodhill Sandpit (Surrey ref 2021/1050) and will be strongly opposing this application, as will be a broader residents group now mobilising across the wider area in conjunction with Shamley Green. We would suggest you sign up to the residents communication channel to stay abreast of the latest info and we would request that you also raise your own individual objections by the cutoff date of 6th Sep.

This is a particularly poor application with significant implications with 44 large tipper trucks, 6 days per week, for at least 4 years…it is very much akin to the early Albury landfill application. There are also strong grounds for objection re transport, safety to road, walker, horse and cyclist, environmental and noise issues and damage that will be caused to the Roman Temple. No one is left unaffected.

There is a resident's originated website ( which details the steps to take to object and although it is unaffiliated with the council - we most definitely support its intent and encourage everyone who disagrees with this proposal to get their objection in.

The Parish of Albury, in Surrey, is set in the middle of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, flanked by the North Downs Way and with the Tillingbourne River running through the village.

The parish has two churches, one set in the heart of the village and the other on Farley Green, both of which have a lively and active congregation.  There is a post office, a village shop and a village hall, run by the parish council for the benefit of the village.  The parish has 2 pubs: The Drummond in Albury and The King William IV in Little London.

Albury benefits from being close enough to Guildford to have all the conveniences of town shopping and access to a good rail service and the motorway network, but still retains all its rural charm and all of the benefits of country living.  The footpath network is vast and the views across the South Downs from various points in the parish are stunning.

Albury is an active village, with a number of community activities such as a cricket and football club, bowls, a history society and local events in the village hall.  The Parish Council has a piece of land by the river, 'the meadow', which makes a lovely area for family picnics and village gatherings and there is a small recreation ground close to the parish church.


The next meeting of the full council will be Monday 4th September at 19:30 in the Memorial Library. The agenda will be available here when ready. To view previous agendas please click here.
