What does the Parish Council do?

Upham Parish Council is here working for you and is responsible for helping the Upham community enjoy living and working in and around Upham. We aim to improve the local community, deliver services that local residents need, and we are here to listen and act.

What are the Council’s responsibilities?

The Parish Council is responsible for Upham Recreation Ground, bus shelters, play areas, street lighting, village seats, village greens, village pond as well as commenting and putting your views across on issues such as planning applications, highways and any other responsibilities that principal authorities wish to have our views on.

Upham Parish Council works very closely with Winchester City Council, Hampshire County Council, Eastleigh Borough Council, Hampshire Police Authority and many other organisations and community groups.

Parish Council Meetings

Residents of Upham are welcome to attend any of the Parish Council Meetings, which are held on the 4th Monday of each month (excluding August and December). The Meetings are held in the small Hall within Upham Village Hall, Mortimers Lane, commencing at 7.30 p.m. Agendas for the Parish Council Meetings are placed on the 3 village noticeboards which are positioned around the village. On these noticeboards Upham Parish Council always publish the Planning Applications for Upham so that parishioners are able to comment on them.
