Disability Access Survey for East Meon
A Disability Access Survey is currently being prepared for the village by Sue Williams.
Sue along with the Parish Council welcomes any input from residents.
For example if you feel there should be a dropped kerb somewhere or a more accessible gate on Parish Council land please do let let us know.
The swings at the Village Hall play area are currently out of action
following an annual survey by RoSPA (The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents).
Unfortunately they were found to be unsafe due to the top beam showing early signs of rot, this is being looked into and will be replaced ASAP. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.
Hampshire County Council is seeking the views of residents about 20 mph limits within Hampshire.
The County Council is keen to hear from as many residents, businesses and other stakeholders as possible, to find out their views on the implementation of 20mph limits in the context of other highways priorities and the County Council's statutory duties to maintain the highway in a safe condition within a limited budget.
The findings from the survey, together with data about use of the highway, speed enforcement, road safety and environmental impacts will be important in helping to shape future policy relating to 20mph speed limits in Hampshire and, in turn, future decision-making around 20mph speed limits.
The survey is available at: https://www.hants.gov.uk/transport/transportschemes/20mph-speed-limits-consultation and should take just 15 minutes to complete.
It is open until midnight on Monday 12 September 2022.

Welcome to East Meon Parish Council. The historic parish of East Meon is located six miles to the west of Petersfield, Hampshire. It lies in a wide valley, bounded on its southern and eastern sides by the South Downs. The River Meon rises from a source to the south of the village and then flows through the village centre.
East Meon was an important Minster and Hundred in Saxon times. Both before and after the Norman Conquest it was a Manor of the Bishops of Winchester, who built the magnificent parish church of All Saints and the mediaeval manor house, The Court House. The village contains a number of ancient hall houses. It was chosen to be the ‘Domesday Village’ in 1986.
East Meon Parish Council hold 6 meetings a year which take place in the Church Hall at 6.30pm. All Parishioners are welcome to attend and the agenda for each meeting is available on the website and also on the village noticeboard. In addition to the regular meetings, the Annual Parish Assembly will take place in April.
