Baughurst has a history going back over 1000 years, and is as strong a community now as was then. We are home to many volunteering groups, two churches, a secondary school, and a small parade of shops. It is comprised of three Wards - Baughurst, Baughurst Common and Wolverton, with a population of around 3,000 people, the majority of them living in urban Baughurst. The Parish Council works closely with the whole of the community to help provide a safe and enjoyable place in which to live.
We need Councillors!
Following the elections earlier this year, and thanks to members of the public who have filled three vacancies, we are now left with a total of 1 vacancy for Baughurst Common Ward. This covers the estate east of Brimpton Road and north of Heath End Road, and we are still seeking to fill the vacancy preferably from that community, and would welcome applications - male or female - from enthusiastic members of the public who feel that they have something to offer to the parish. If you'd like to know more, please contact the Clerk to the Council, Penny Waterfield, on 0118 981 2944, for further information. We really do hope to hear from you!

With effect from May 2021, Council meetings will be held in person in either Heath End or Wolverton village halls.
Baughurst Parish Council is a partner in the Hampshire County Council and Basingstoke Council emergency plan which has been activated.

Baughurst Parish Council will be linking the vulnerable and volunteers and supporting the many community action groups within this area. One of these is a Facebook group - Tadley, Baughurst and Pamber Heath Community Coronavirus Response, which have an extensive network set up to identify those in need and who need help.
