Nether Wallop Parish Council (NWPC)
NWPC is the first tier of local government and comprises up to seven elected representatives of the community who serve for four years at a time and meet monthly in the Nether Wallop or Wallop Parish Hall to debate and determine matters of interest to the Parish.
The NWPC usually meets on the second Monday of each month, from 6.45 pm, in the New Nether Wallop Village Hall. NWPC meetings are held in public and there is an opportunity for members of the public to speak at the meetings on subjects about which they feel strongly. Please see our dates of meetings and details of councillors.

The NWPC Data Protection Policy
Nether Wallop Parish Council recognises its responsibility to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) which took effect in the UK from 25 May 2018 replacing the existing law on data protection (the Data Protection Act 1998) and gives individuals more rights and protection regarding how their personal data is used by councils. See the NWPC Data Protection Policy here.
The Nether Wallop Village Hall
The Council owns the Playing Fields (including the pavilion and the tennis court) and has a long lease over the Village Green. It is responsible for managing the Nether Wallop Village Hall which is owned by the Trustees. The Wallop Parish Hall (WPH) is jointly owned by Over and Nether Wallop Parish Councils which share the cost of running it. With Over Wallop bearing 2/3 of the costs and Nether Wallop 1/3. The Councils have responsibility for maintaining these facilities for the use of the Parishes and each year uses part of the precept to fund that work (see the accounts ).
NWPC also takes responsibility alongside Hampshire County Council (HCC) for keeping the Rights Of Way of the Parish in good order and is assisted in this work by a volunteer footpaths officer. Councillors know the Parish and are actively engaged in the community and all its activities. They are entitled to be consulted on planning applications and are often consulted on other matters affecting the Parish or invited to represent a view to other authorities such as Test Valley Borough Council, Hampshire County Council, the Police, health authorities and providers of services.
Councillors represent YOU – this is where local democracy begins.
