About Hedge End Town Council
Welcome to Hedge End Town Council. For over 125 years, we have grown alongside the community, representing a thriving town.
We own and maintain most of Hedge End’s parks and green spaces as well as the allotments, Albert Road Cemetery, recreational facilities, some youth services and community halls.
Hedge End is divided into four Town Council wards and is served by 18 Councillors: Kings Copse (5 Councillors), Village (5), Berry (4) and Park (4).
The new wards provide a more equal balance between Councillors and electors.
There are democratic structures within Hedge End Town Council which give all members a chance to take part in decision making. As there are too many decisions to be made by the whole council sitting together, most are delegated to Committees.
Within our system of government, Hedge End Town Council is the first tier of local government and is, therefore, closest to the community.
Eastleigh Borough Council provides services from the civic offices in Eastleigh and via its Local Area Committees.
Hampshire County Council is responsible for a wide range of services and is the Highways Authority.
Hedge End falls into the UK Parliamentary Constituency of Eastleigh and the MP is currently Paul John Holmes (Conservative).
For the roles and responsibilities of all authorities, please see our Wheel of Services.
