Welcome to the website for Winchfield Parish Council
Winchfield is a rural parish in the middle of Hart District in the north of Hampshire, but it may not remain rural for long as Hart District Council has been pursuing proposals to build 5,000 houses in a development it calls Shapley Heath Garden Community.
See the separate page for details. There is an important update in November 2021.
News and Events
Shapley Heath Garden Community Survey
Hart District Council published a survey on its Garden Community website to gather information from households across the district over a six-week period ending on July 5. The survey received just 1,197 responses. The Parish Council gave a summary of the main issues to take note of.
The Conservative group at Hart also published a survey to enable residents across the district to express their views on the proposed development of 5,000/10,000 houses in the Shapley Heath/Winchfield area. A copy of the leaflet is below.
Water Main Installation
South East Water is installing more than 11 kilometres of new water main between Fleet and Odiham. The route of the new pipe goes through the following roads in the village: Pale Lane, Bagwell Lane and Odiham Road, and will impact on Poland Lane and The Hurst. There will be significant traffic disruption during the work. Full details of the proposals can be found on the South East Water website.
South East Water has a customer information pack providing useful information which can be found below. Also below is a list of questions that the Parish Council put to South East Water at a meeting, together with the answers received.
Details of the road closures are on the Road Works pages of the Parish Council website.
If you would like further information you can contact the South East Water Customer Liaison Manager, Helen Tucker, on 01634 276503 or the Parish Council Vice-Chairman Councillor Meyrick Williams.

After the Litter Picks last year and earlier in 2021 had to be cancelled due to the lockdowns, one is being planned for Sunday, December 5. For further information, please email email@example.com
Defibrillators are installed at the Barley Mow pub and at the Village Hall.
In an emergency always dial 999 first. The ambulance service will be aware that the village has defibrillators and they can provide support over the telephone before an ambulance arrives. Both the defibrillators are in locked cabinets and the ambulance service will be able to advise on how to gain access.
