Bursledon Parish Council is made up of four members of staff and twelve Councillors which includes three borough Councillors we also have Bursledon, Hound & Hamble’s County Councillor within our team. We have four main areas within the parish, Bursledon Green, Lowford Village, Pilands Wood & Old Bursledon. Bursledon is one of the older settlements in the Borough of Eastleigh. In the 1970’s and 80’s it accommodated considerable development. The parish straddles the M27 motorway, extending to the southern boundaries of Hedge End to the north, and adjoining Hound parish to the west and south. To the east the settlement fronts the Hamble river, which is tidal at this point. Bursledon had its origins in ship-building and repair activities focused on the river.
