Sherfield Park Parish Council was established in May 2016 when Sherfield Park reached 1000 households.
In 2004 building started on Sherfield Park, a new development of homes to the south of the parish of Sherfield on Loddon at Taylor’s Farm. Over the following years, both the Parish Council and the Sherfield Park Community Association (SPCA) came to recognise that there were distinct differences between the communities of the old village and Sherfield Park (Taylor’s Farm) in terms of the residents’ respective needs and aspirations. Taking this into account, along with the population growth and 2014 completion date for the Sherfield Park development, both parties believed it was sensible to review the community representation arrangements and a Community Governance Review was requested from Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council.
Consequently, as of 1 April 2016, Sherfield on Loddon parish was altered by the separation of the Taylor’s Farm parish ward from that parish and the creation of a new parish and parish council for the Sherfield Park community at Taylor’s Farm. The new parish was named Sherfield Park Parish Council.
Sherfield Park is classified as urban (part of Basingstoke) rather than rural, and it had matured into its own identity. We now have seven councillors, a clerk and budget, dedicated to making Sherfield Park a great place to live, raise a family and retire to.
