Headbourne Worthy is a small rural parish located to the north of Winchester.  The village is predominantly residential, with a few businesses, and outlying farmsteads.

Headbourne Worthy Parish Council represents the residents of the village, particularly with regard to consultations from higher tiers of local and national government, and planning applications.  The Parish Council is responsible for the maintenance of the War Memorial at St Swithun's Church, the footpaths that cross the village, and the bus shelters.  We also conduct small projects to improve the community, for example bulb planting on the village verges.  The Parish Council is also able to escalate any issues or concerns that residents have to the appropriate organisation.  Details of all meetings are published on the village noticeboards approximately a week before a meeting.  If you would like to receive this information via email, please contact the Clerk.

Residents are welcome to contact the Clerk or Councillors, or to attend any Parish Council meetings.  If an issue is of significant local interest, additional meetings may be arranged.

The Parish Council receives its income via residents' Council Tax.  The amount received, the Precept, is shown on each household's Council Tax Bill.
