Welcome

April and May Parish Council meetings

Due to the ongoing restrictions caused by the Covid-19 Pandemic Lyndhurst Parish Council has taken the decision to cancel its April and May Parish Council meetings.

We are taking the opportunity to gather together ideas for the future and will be back to regular meetings as soon as possible.

Please contact the Clerk (details on our website www.lyndhurst-pc.gov.uk) if you have any suggestions for future projects.

Please remember that Lyndhurst, Emery Down, Bank, Allum Green and Gritnam forms your parish and with your help we can make a difference.

Our Planning Committee meetings will go ahead by means of an email exchange between Councillors with the Planning Committee Chairman collating the replies and passing them through to the Clerk for onward transmission to the relevant officer at the New Forest National Park Authority with the Committee’s considered reasons and recommendation.

Dear Residents of Lyndhurst

The Covid-19 virus is certainly on all of our minds and we cannot underestimate the risk it poses. The Government will be making decisions on a national basis about how to manage the threat and these decisions may, in turn, provide additional challenges for individuals and for our community.

However, at the same time, this is an opportunity for residents to come together to support one another, especially our more vulnerable neighbours. The Parish Council is keen to help all residents. Neighbourhood Watch groups along with your Facebook Group Community will be able to play a particularly important role.

We are happy to be of assistance in any way we can.

Regards
Councillor Chris Willsher
Chair, Lyndhurst Parish Council

Lyndhurst Parish Council regrets that we have had to close Coles Mead Recreation Ground for the duration of the current restrictions in force brought about due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  We look forward to being able to welcome residents back once restrictions have been lifted but in the meantime your co-operation would be very much appreciated.

We are a vibrant and approachable Parish Council situated in the "capital" of the New Forest - one of the most beautiful parts of United Kingdom.

The village of Lyndhurst has excellent shopping facilities that cater for day to day needs as well as the frequent tourists who visit the region.

We have four churches a newly and beautifully refurbished infant school, numerous public houses, hotels and restaurants to suit all tastes.

The village is home to New Forest District Council, the Forestry Commission and the Verderers' Court.

It has a vibrant Community Centre and Museum, both conveniently situated in the car park.

For the sporting enthusiast, there is an 18-hole golf course and we are surrounded by miles of open forest land for the peaceful enjoyment of walkers, horse riders and cyclists (Countryside Codes permitting).
