Bishopstoke Parish Council would like to help any local residents that wish to enhance their local area by planting wildflowers. Often, the areas best suited for planting are owned by either Eastleigh Borough Council or Hampshire County Council. The Parish Council can help you get in touch with the right people to gain permission for your planting.
The Council may be able to support in other ways too. Anyone interested should contact the Clerk by emailing the Clerk.
Congratulations to all those who were elected to serve on Bishopstoke Parish Council for the next three years.
These web pages will be updated over the course of the next few weeks to reflect the changes that have taken place.
There is a shortened annual meeting taking place at the Bishopstoke Community Centre on 18th May at 7:30pm to elect the Chair and Vice Chair, but any other Council business will be deferred until the first meeting after lockdown restrictions are fully lifted.
The meeting is open to the public but we would ask that anyone intending to attend please let the Clerk know as numbers will be limited by virtue of the restrictions still in place.
CHANGES TO THE PARLIAMENTARY CONSTITUENCY BOUNDARY
The Boundary Commission for England has published its initial proposals for new Parliamentary constituency boundaries and this is your chance to comment.
The changes have no direct impact on Bishopstoke, which would still be part of the area that elects an MP for Eastleigh. However, the section of the Borough from Hedge End to the south would no longer be part of the area, whereas Hiltingbury, Fryern Hill and Valley Park would shift from being part of the Winchester MP area to the Eastleigh MP area.
The proposals and maps for the nine English regions have been published on their website as a part of an eight-week public consultation period that’s runs until Tuesday 2 August 2021. This is your chance to see what the proposed new constituencies might look like and give the Commission your views on the proposals.
The Boundary Commission is promoting use of a specifically-designed consultation website as the main way to displaying their proposals, and to receive comments on them. To visit the website, click here.
Consultation is currently open until Tuesday 2nd August 2021 - please ensure they receive your response by that date for it to be considered.
