Welcome to Selborne Parish Council

Selborne Parish Council covers the villages of Selborne, Blackmoor and Oakhanger.  Selborne and its surrounding countryside is famous for its association with the eighteenth century naturalist Gilbert White. In his book The Natural History of Selborne, he meticulously recorded his observations on the plants, birds and animals of this lovely part of Hampshire. 

Much of the parish is within the South Downs Natioanl Park and is surrounded by the most beautiful countryside, yet is easily accessible from the A3 and A31. There are some thriving rural businesses and small shops. There are plenty of walking and riding opportunities with many public paths to explore. 

Selborne Parish Council works to supports its residents and businesses within the 3 villages. Council meetings are held monthly of the second Wednesday of each month, with occasional extra meetings as required. Planning applications are discussed within the meetings and there is structured opportunity for residents to speak on planning and other issues. The 12 councillors are supported by a part time clerk. For details of all councillors, meetings and minutes please click on the Council Information link at the top of the page.
