The dividing line goes through the nature reserve and along Elvetham Heath Way. Three councillors represent the East Ward, four the West.

What do Parish Council and Local Councillors do?

Elvetham Heath is a great place to live and being a Parish councillor is about being involved in your local community. It does not have to take up much of your time but the more you can put in, the more you will get out.
