The Council owns the Playing Fields (including the pavilion and the tennis court) and has a long lease over the Village Green. It is responsible for managing the Nether Wallop Village Hall which is owned by the Trustees. The Wallop Parish Hall (WPH) is jointly owned by Over and Nether Wallop Parish Councils who share the cost of running it with Over Wallop bearing 2/3 of the costs and Nether Wallop 1/3. The Council has responsibility for maintaining these facilities for the use of the village and each year it uses part of the precept to fund that work (see the accounts ).
NWPC also takes responsibility alongside Hampshire County Council for keeping the Rights Of Way of the Parish in good order and is assisted in this work by a volunteer footpaths officer. Councillors know the Parish and are actively engaged in the community and all its activities. They are entitled to be consulted on planning applications and are often consulted on other matters affecting the Parish or invited to represent a view to other authorities such as Test Valley Borough Council, Hampshire County Council, the Police, health authorities and providers of services.
Councillors represent YOU – this is where local democracy begins.
The Parish council usually meets on the second Monday of each month, from 7.30 pm, at Nether Wallop Village Hall.
