Parish Council

Welcome to the home page for Buriton Parish Council.

As well as establishing this Community Website for the parish, the Parish Council will  provide copies of Agendas and Minutes of its Meetings here.

Dates of the regular Parish Council meetings for 2017 are listed below - as well as the names of the current members of the Council.  

The date of the Council's 2017 Annual Meeting is yet to be confirmed but copies of the Chairman's summary of achievements for previous years are attached at the foot of this page.

Details of any planning applications in the parish can be found by clicking here: 

Also attached at the foot of this page is a downloadable copy of an "Exploring Buriton" leaflet. This provides details of a number of circular walks in the parish and encourages visitors to respect the countryside as it is cherished by the local community. 

The Parish Council aims to make the countryside accessible to responsible walkers by a steady programme of replacing stiles with kissing gates.  We offer a warm welcome to visitors to the parish - particularly those travelling on foot, by cycle or on horse back.  

Our Parish Clerk, Karen Crookshank, can be contacted via or by telephoning 07943 536065.
