Welcome to Hound Parish Council Website

Hound PC is in the process of moving to its new premises at 29C Station Road, Netley Abbey, SO31 5AE.

Due to technical difficulties with the telephone lines, internet provision and PC installation, there will be unavoidable delays in the transition to the new office.

Therefore the existing Parish Office will be closed on Thursday 11 Dec 14 and Friday 12 Dec 14, please bear with us whilst we deal with this issue.

Weather Advice
Hampshire County Council have posted this Weather Advice to help keep everyone informed with practical help and contact numbers.

Please note that the coastal path between Beach Lane and the boundary with Vitalise (Waterside House) has a large hole in it at present. Hound PC is working to get this area surveyed and repaired, but in the meantime, please heed weather warnings and do not walk along there.

The Hard area outside the Royal Victoria Country Park is also very exposed to the elements - members of the public are asked to stay away from this area.

Hound Parish Council has closed the section of sea wall path that runs from Beach Lane to Waterside House. Due to the recent heavy rainfall, winds and the natural destructive power of the sea, it has unfortunately collapsed onto the beach. Therefore the Council urges Parishioners to avoid the path, as the area is structurally unsafe, and poses a serious hazard.

The 1868 National Gazetteer described the parish as being in the Hundred of "Mainsbridge" and containing Sholing and Woolston as well as Netley.
