9th July @ 7:30pm
Bishopstoke Methodist Church


Meetings of the Full Council have previously taken place in the the Parish Office, next to Bishopstoke Memorial Hall. Currently the Council meets on the second Tuesday of every other month in Bishopstoke Methodist Church, usually starting at 7:30pm.

The Annual meeting of the Parish Council (often referred to as the AGM) is held in May each year. At last year's meeting Cllr Louise Hillier-Wheal was elected to serve as the Chair with Cllr Geoff Harris elected to be Vice Chair.

In election years the Annual Meeting is required to be held within 14 days of the election. For 2024 that coincides with the Council's usual Annual meeting - held on the second Tuesday in May. At the meeting, the Chair and Vice-Chair for the year are appointed, as well as the various Committees and Working Groups that help the Council operate. Residents are welcome to attend any meeting of the Full Council, or the various Committees.  The next elections are due in 2028. 

The Council has overall responsibility for all the decisions of the various Committees and Working Groups, approving them at each meeting. Most Council policies and procedures are reviewed by Full Council, which also looks after Armistice Day arrangements and the running of the Travel Token scheme. The Council also takes those decisions which fall outside the responsibilities of the other Committees.


In addition to the various Committees and Working Groups, there are a number of other responsibilities and appointments made by Full Council.

The Chair and Clerk are invited to attend team meetings for the Borough Council Bishopstoke, Fair Oak & Horton Heath Local Area Committee. The meetings are used to update each side on progress with shared projects or goals, and to discuss upcoming items that may be of interest or cause problems.


Other appointments made by the Council include:

  • Representative for the Airport Consultative Committee

  • Representative to Bishopstoke Community Association

  • Representative for Bishopstoke Parochial Charities

  • Representative for the Neighbourhood Plan

  • Representative for the Greening Campaign

  • Representatives to the Eastleigh & District Association of Local Councils (the Chair plus one other Councillor)

These representatives all report back to the Council with updates as appropriate.


The new Council is lead by Cllr Louise Hillier-Wheal as Chair, with Cllr Geoff Harris as Vice Chair. The remaining members are Cllrs Brown, Burcombe-Filer, Dajani, Daly, Kirby, Mignot, Moore, Scott, Thornton and Winstanley.
