Selborne Parish Council covers the villages of Selborne, Blackmoor and Oakhanger.  Selborne and surrounding countryside are 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 National 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 three villages. Council meetings are held monthly on the third Wednesday of each month, with occasional extra meetings as required. Planning applications are discussed within the meetings and there is an opportunity for residents to speak on planning and other issues. The twelve Councillors are supported by a part-time clerk.
