Parish Council

Welcome to the home page for Buriton Parish Council.

As well as establishing this Community Website for the parish, the Parish Council provides copies of Agendas and Minutes of its Meetings here.

Although the Parish Council does not need to comply with the Government's 'Transparency Code for Smaller Councils', the Council considers that it is good practice to display a range of other information in this part of the website [see under 'Other Information' tab].

Dates of the regular Parish Council meetings for 2017/18 are listed below - as well as the names of the current members of the Council.  

The Council's 2017 Annual Meeting was held on 22nd May and copies of the Chairman's summary of achievements can be viewed under the 'Annual Reports' tab from this web-page. The Accounts Notice for 2017 is available under the 'Other Information' tab.

Any complaints or problems with the local road network can be reported directly to Hampshire County Council via this page on our website: This deals with potholes, faulty street lights, tree problems, flooding or drainage issues, abandoned vehicles, refilling salt bins, fly tipping and other issues.

The District Council has an online reporting system so that residents can report environmental problems and nuisance. Details can be found on the 'Useful Information' section of this website.

The Parish Council aims to make the countryside accessible to responsible walkers by a steady programme of replacing stiles with kissing gates.  We offer a warm welcome to visitors to the parish - particularly those travelling on foot, by cycle or on horse back. The local walks leaflet, "Exploring Buriton" (downloadable from the home page of this website, provides details of a number of circular walks in the parish and encourages visitors to respect the countryside as it is cherished by the local community.   

Our Parish Clerk, Karen Crookshank, can be contacted via or by telephoning 07943 536065.
