Ampfield and Braishfield Ward Profile

The ward profiles are currently being worked on due to the changes made in the Community Governance Review. The information here may not be accurate.


Ward profiles have been developed for each of the 24 ward areas in Test Valley. Additionally, parish profiles have been developed for the borough's parishes. The profiles aim to provide consistent information about local communities across the borough. It is hoped that these profiles will allow a greater understanding of your local area and help to identify priorities for the community.
