Councillors and democracy

We are the democratically elected local council for the New Forest. Find out about our structure, work and responsibilities on behalf of the people of the district.


The constitution sets out how the council operates, how decisions are made and what procedures are followed.

Forward Plan

The Forward Plan lists key decisions likely to be made by or for the council's Cabinet.


Petitions are one way in which people can let us know their concerns.
