Councillors

A councillor is a member of the council and is normally elected for a term of four years. People of any political or religious persuasion are eligible to become a councillor, although their personal views should not extend into their parish council work.

They are elected to represent the interests of the local community as a whole and promote a harmonious local environment. The number of elected councillors depends on the size of the area.  Shedfield Parish Council should have 14 Councillors, 8 from each Waltham Chase and 6 fron Shedfield and Shirrell Heath.  We currently have 14 Councillors.  

Local councils are the first tier of governance and are the first point of contact for anyone concerned with a community issue. They are democratically elected local authorities and exist in England, Wales and Scotland. The term 'local council' is synonymous with 'parish council', 'town council' and 'community council'.

Under the Localism Act 2011 Members of the Council are required to complete a Declaration of Pecuniary Interest covering themselves and their spouse/partner. These declarations can be found at www.winchester.gov.uk/councillors-committees/parish-councils 

Addendum: Please contact the Clerk in the first instance on any Council matter.  We look forward to hearing from you. 

The Parish of Shedfield is also supported by one County Councillor and six District Councillors, as Waltham Chase is in the Central Meon Valley Ward and both Shedfield and Shirrell Heath are in the Whiteley & Shedfield Ward.  The committees they attend and their contact details can be found via the following links:
