  THE WIGHT WE WANT

Please read the information below and then click on the survey link in blue to complete the survey. Your views are important.

The summary results of this survey will be published and will help confirm the specific needs of communities in different parts of the Island. This will then be reflected in the development of a ‘Regeneration strategy for the Isle of Wight’, to be published in Spring 2018.


As well as this short survey there will be local workshops and focus groups, held across the Island, over the coming months. These conversations will help us to understand more about what our residents want to see in place for future generations of the Island over the next 10 years and beyond.

A “residents panel” is also being set up to both continue this conversation and to engage our community in future research and consultation. If you would like to be involved please provide your contact details at the end of the questionnaire.

 

Welcome to Whippingham Parish Council website. 

After many years of requesting a Parish Council for Whippingham this finally only came into fruition in May 2008 when Whippingham elected its first Parish Council. This also completed  every part of the Island having a Parish or Town Council. 

There are just under 500 households in the electoral area of the Parish Council which is made up of the village of Whippingham, Barton Manor Estate and surrounding area and also includes part of Island Harbour.

The village school that was closed by the isle of Wight Council a few years ago is now occupied by Priory School who's students take a great interest in our village.

We also have a lovely local pub on the banks of the river Medina called "The Folly" and it  serves up delightful meals.

We lost our village post office  and shop when our long serving post mistress retired but we have been lucky to get a mobile post office service back into the village for 3 days a week which is very much appreciated. 

The hub of our village is Whippingham Community Association's Hall that is run by a dedicated group of people. The hall is used for a vaste range of activities by many groups, clubs and individuals.
