Ward & Parish Profile

Anna Ward Profile


Ward profiles have been developed for each of the 24 ward areas in Test Valley. Additionally, parish profiles have been developed for the borough’s parishes. The profiles aim to provide consistent information about local communities across the borough. It is hoped that these profiles will allow a greater understanding of your local area and help to identify priorities for the community.

Below you will find a detailed ward profile for Anna, as well as profiles for the ward’s parishes. If you would like further information about a specific area or data set, please contact the Policy Team on 01264 368000 or policyteam@testvalley.gov.uk and we will work with you to provide a more detailed profile.

‘Ward’ is a term used by the Council and other public sector bodies to define an area represented by one or more Borough Councillors. These Councillors have been elected by the people who live in that ward to represent their views. A parish is represented by a number of Parish Councillors, and is usually smaller than a ward.


The ward of Anna covers 3,338 hectares to the south of Andover, towards the centre of Test Valley.

The close proximity of the ward to Andover means that Anna contains two distinct communities. Firstly those who live in the rural villages such as Abbotts Ann and Goodworth Clatford and secondly those living in Burghclere Down who live in a more urban area on the outskirts of the town.
