Welcome to Soberton Parish Council

The Parish of Soberton and Newtown covers approximately 2,400 hectares (9 square miles) and has a total population approaching 1,600. The countryside contains a mixture of agricultural land, down land, forest and water meadows.

The three main villages within the Parish, Soberton, Soberton Heath and Newtown together with the smaller settlements of Grenville Hall, Hoe Gate, Hundred Acres, Woodend and Kingsmead mostly lie in a dispersed linear pattern stretching along the Meon Valley for about 5 miles.

Events and What's on


Partially Blocked Bridge - West Street

The Parish Council has received reports that the bridge at the end of West Street is partially blocked.

This has been deliberately blocked by The Countryside Team at HCC who have reported that this is due to them carrying out work to the vegetation and the masonry on the bridge. They are also carrying out tree inspections.

I am pleased to say that once this work has been completed the access will be open as normal.
