Tandridge District is a local government district in east Surrey, England containing part of the North Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, part of the Weald and the towns of Warlingham, Caterham, Oxted, Godstone and Lingfield. The area has several woodlands and some open heathland. Elevations above sea level range from 267 m (876 ft) at Botley Hill, North Downs to 42 m (138 ft) near Edenbridge.[2] The district council offices are in Oxted, the second biggest settlement in the district.

The district borders the Borough of Crawley (in West Sussex) to the south west, the district of Mid Sussex (also in West Sussex) to the south, the district of Wealden (in East Sussex) to the south east, the Borough of Reigate and Banstead to the west, Sevenoaks District (in Kent) to the east and the London Boroughs of Croydon and Bromley to the north.


It is named after a hillside village and slope on the south slope of the North Downs, Tandridge. Tandridge hundred, an early local government district, covered roughly the same area. By the late 19th century, hundreds were no longer relevant, and urban and rural districts replaced any remaining functions in 1894.

The vast majority of the district is covered by the Metropolitan Green Belt to prevent extension of the London urban area.[3]

The district was formed on 1 April 1974, under the Local Government Act 1972, by the merger of Caterham and Warlingham urban district and Godstone Rural District. Since 2000, civil parish councils once again cover the district.

The district is not currently twinned, but one of its towns, Lingfield, is twinned with Plaisance-du-Touch, Toulouse, France.[4]


Elections to Tandridge District Council are held in three out of every four years, with one third of the 42 seats on the council being elected at each election. From the first election in 1973 to 1990 the Conservative party controlled the council, but for most of the 1990s no party had a majority. This changed at the 2000 election when the Conservatives regained a majority. In 2019, Tandridge Council entered No Overall Control. As of the 2019 election the council is composed of the following councillors:-[5]

Each civil parish is named after one of its towns or villages which has been established around an Anglican church. All other settlements/neighbourhoods with their own Anglican church or chapel and therefore traditionally in England defined as "a village" are marked with an asterisk. A double asterisk indicates the locality has a church hall used as a Church of England church.[8] One chapel in Limpsfield ecclesiastical parish and civil parish has no adjoining settlement, in Staffhurst Wood.
