Local organisations

The Parish Council values working with local Organisations including:

  • Ockham and Hatchford Residents Association (OHRA) – keeping residents informed of current local issues as well as social events and welcoming new residents. More information: www.ockhamandhatchfordra.net
  • Surrey Wildlife Trust (SWT) – the organisation dedicated to the protection and regeneration of wildlife in Surrey; to manage Wisley Common, Ockham and Chatley Heath, and designated Sites of Special Scientific Interest, recognising their importance for nature conservation; to help maintain Special Protection Area sites to support rare birds, domestic species of reptile, unusual plants and 20 species of dragonflies and damselflies. The SWT Rangers regularly attend Parish Council meetings and keep the Parish Council informed of matters of interest including updates on wildlife events, precious habitats, and vulnerable species.

  • Wisley Action Group (WAG) – which represents the views of local residents particularly in relation to Three Farms Meadows (the former Wisley airfield). WAG was set up in the mid 1980s to protect the former Wisley Airfield from inappropriate development and to give voice to concerns about maintaining the Greenbelt & environment http://wisleyactiongroup.co.uk/
