'Ward' is a term used by the Council and other public sector bodies to define an area represented by one or more Borough Councillors. These Councillors have been elected by the people who live in that ward to represent their views. A parish is represented by a number of Parish Councillors, and is usually smaller than a ward.
Penton Bellinger covers 4,791 hectares in the north-west of Test Valley. The northern and western edges of the ward border Wiltshire, with Andover to the east.
The ward is home to a range of different communities from smaller rural village communities to the larger and more densely populated community of Shipton Bellinger.
