Monxton Parish Council

Parish Council activities fall into these main categories:

  • Representing the local community
  • Delivering services to meet local needs
  • Improving quality of life and community well-being.
  • Local councils can provide and maintain a variety of important and visible local services including allotments, bridleways, bus shelters, car parks, commons and open spaces, community transport schemes, community safety and crime reduction measures, events and festivals, footpaths, leisure and sports facilities, litter bins, planning, street cleaning and lighting, tourism activities, traffic calming measures, village greens and youth projects. (Services in bold are applicable to Monxton)
  • Parish councils receive funding by levying a ‘precept’ on the council tax paid by the residents of the parish. Parish councils comprise unpaid councillors who are elected to serve for four years. However, councillors can serve for more or less time than this.

Representative Powers

Parish councils must be notified by the district, borough or county council of:

  • All planning applications in their areas
  • Intention to provide a burial ground in the parish
  • Proposals to carry out sewerage works
  • Footpath and bridleway (more generally, ‘rights of way’) surveys
  • Intention to make bye-laws in relation to hackney carriages, music and dancing, promenades and street naming

The Monxton Parish Council meets quarterly at the Monxton Village Hall. Meetings are open session and parishioners are very welcome to attend.

The Parish Councillors work on a voluntary basis and interface with Test Valley Borough Council in matters concerning the village.
