Parish Councils

About Parish Councils

Parish councils in England form the first tier of local government. They are elected bodies with limited tax raising powers, and are responsible for certain community services in areas known as civil parishes.

For more information about the powers and duties of Parish Councils visit the FAQ section of this site.

Borough & County Representation

The communities of the Candover Valley are also represented on Basingstoke & Deane Borough Council by Mark Ruffell (Upton Grey and the Candovers) and on Hampshire County Council by Mrs Anna McNair Scott (Candovers).

Candover Valley’s Parish Councils

The two parish councils represented on this site are Candovers Parish Council (representing the interests of residents of Brown and Chilton Candover), and Preston Candover & Nutley Parish Council (concerned with the interests of those living in Preston Candover, Nutley, and Axford).

Information about the activities of both Parish Councils will be posted regularly on this website. However, if you have questions not answered here, or in the FAQ pages, or would like to discuss a particular issue, please contact the councillors or the Clerk.
