Town Council is the first and most local tier, with an important role to play
in promoting the town, representing its interests and supporting the work of
different groups in the community. East Hampshire District Council is the
second tier and is responsible for services including car parking, housing and
street cleaning. Finally Hampshire County Council’s responsibilities include
highways (relating to both roads and pavements), education, health and social
services, public rights of way and libraries.
