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.
