Longparish Parish Council

The Parish Council has 10 members and is elected every four years. The next election will be in 2015. Those interested in serving on the Parish Council are particularly welcome to attend meetings, and should ask the Clerk for advice on election procedures.

The Council normally meets in the Meeting Room at the Village Hall at 7.30pm on the second Monday of every month except August.  Arrangements are made for the Planning sub committee to meet in August if necessary, to provide continuity. The Annual Parish Meeting is held in March or April and the Annual Meeting of the council (when officers and committees are elected) is in May.

The times and the agenda of each meeting are posted on the notice boards by the village shop and in Forton three working days before the meeting.

Parishioners are welcome to attend any meeting, and time is made available for them to voice any concerns.

Our Borough Councillor and County Councillor attend when their schedules permit.

The Council employs a part-time Clerk to deal with all correspondence, take minutes, and execute Council decisions. Click here to contact the Longparish Parish Council.

The damaged swing in the playground has now been taken down, and the PC are researching a suitable replacement.

We are very grateful to receive information of this nature, and ask that any other issues be reported to:

The Village Design Statement aims to describe the village as it is today and how we would like it to develop. This can then be used to guide planning and development.

Details of applications including plans and background papers are in the planning area of the TVBC website.

If you want to alter or extend your property, including outbuildings and fences, you may well need planning permission from the Test Valley Borough Council (TVBC), especially if you live in the Conservation Area.

Parts of the Parish have been designated a Conservation Area. See the Character Appraisal on the Test Valley website:

In this section we've tried to bring together basic information and contact details for the various levels of Government that can impact on the people of Longparish.
