The Council

Hedge End Town Council has grown alongside the town it serves. The Town Council has 22 members elected every four years from nine wards. Eastleigh Borough Council provides services from the civic offices in Eastleigh and via its Local Area Committees. Hedge End is represented by nine borough councillors.

 

The local MP for Eastleigh is currently Mims Davies (Conservative).


Hedge End Town Council is very conscious of its commitment to service delivery, standards and value. Hedge End Town Council has budgeted to achieve efficiency and value, ensuring that the costs are kept to an absolute minimum and benefits can be attained whilst lessening the cost upon the taxpayer.

 

The Town Council strives for excellence in its public service.

 

Within our system of government, Hedge End Town Council is the first tier of local government and is, therefore, closest to the community. This makes us more able to find out and react to the wishes of our local residents. 

 

Hedge End Town Council operates as a three-way partnership between its elected members, its officers, and its residents. We all work together for the common good of Hedge End.

 

There are democratic structures within Hedge End Town Council which give all members a chance to take part in making decisions. As there are too many decisions to be made by the whole council sitting together, most decisions are delegated out to Committees.

 

All meetings take place in the Town Council Offices, on the top floor of the 2000 Centre, St John's Road.

Hedge End Full Council

Most of the decisions made by committees are only recommendations and do not become Council decisions until they have been ratified by the Council as a whole. Other decisions are deemed to be too important or too urgent to be farmed out and they are also made at Full Council Meetings.

 

Council meets, usually on the 3rd Wednesday of each month at 7.30pm. The meetings are fairly formal - ruled by Standing Orders - and nobody is allowed to speak until invited by the Chair.

 

That being said, the meetings are very friendly and members of the public are encouraged to take part.
