Parish Council in brief

The parish council is the lowest tier of government and as such, its responsibilities and powers are modest. The parish council keeps a watching brief on a number of matters which fall under the responsibility either of Test Valley Borough Council (TVBC) or Hampshire County Council (HCC) and in these cases, the council operates mainly through formal communications with those other tiers of local government:

  • Planning (TVBC)
  • Waste Management and Recycling (TVBC)
  • Highways and Road Safety (HCC)
  • Footpaths (HCC)
  • Transport (HCC)

Braishfield Parish Council has direct responsibility for:

  • The Recreation Ground
  • The Village Pond
  • The War Memorial
  • Noticeboards and newspaper box
  • Bus shelter

The recreation ground and the war memorial are each held in trust and are managed as charities.
