Who we are & what we do
East Hunsbury Parish Council was created on the 1st April 2015. The parish was previously part of the much larger parish of Wootton & East Hunsbury, and two new, separate, parishes were formed after a Community Governance Review.
The inaugural meeting of East Hunsbury Parish Council was held on 21st May 2015.
