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.
There was an important update in November 2021.

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.
Since the road closures have been put in place in and around the Parish there have been a number of road traffic incidents and concerns have been raised about diverted traffic using the narrow lanes and dangerous junctions in the Village. These concerns have been raised by the Parish Council with Hampshire County Council and Hart District Council.
If you would like further information you can contact the South East Water Customer Liaison Manager, Liz Faulkner, on 07866 126589, or the Parish Council Vice-Chairman Councillor Meyrick Williams.

Litter Picks are normally held twice a year and the last one was held on Sunday, 13 March. 27 people turned out and covered all the lanes, the canal car park and towpaths, and several footpaths. Afterwards everyone enjoyed bacon baps and a catch-up in the village hall! For further information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
So you know how to use a defibrillator in an emergency? Watch this short video to find out how: https://vimeo.com/642636017#t=2s
