Wherwell Parish Council
Welcome to the Wherwell Parish Council section of the Wherwell website.
Wherwell is one of the biggest geographical parishes within the Test Valley covering over 3633 acres with 420 parishioners, nestled in a picturesque valley along the banks of the famous River Test and shielded from the north winds by Harewood Forest. Wherwell boasts some of the finest timber framed thatched cottages in the county, an imposing church and modern village hall, a large and well equipped playing field, an excellent primary school…not forgetting the White Lion pub.
Our parish council plays an important role as the grassroots level of local government, directly representing and promoting the interests of its community. In addition to the Councillors, who are unpaid representatives, the Parish Council employs a Clerk to carry out its business and ensure our statutory requirements are met.
Wherwell Parish Council meets every two months on the second Tuesday at the Colonel Jenkins Memorial Hall at 6.30, when the public are warmly welcomed and have the opportunity to ask questions before the official business of the Council meeting begins. Additional meetings are held to review planning applications as required.
