From Tuesday 24 March until further notice, all council-owned public toilets in the district will be closed. The Norse South East staff who clean the toilets will be redeployed to other work in the area.
All play areas around the district will be closed until further notice.
We have been asked if we will relax car parking charges. Abolishing car park charges at this stage could encourage more visitors to the area, which would be against the government’s policy of social distancing.
New bulky waste bookings have been suspended until further notice. Norse South East will complete existing requests provided that the waste is left outside your property for the crew to collect.
It may take longer than usual to clear reported fly-tips and empty street litter bins.
We are currently working as hard as we can to keep your rubbish and recycling collections running as scheduled. However, we may need to prioritise domestic waste (green bin) collections as the situation with the COVID-19 continues. We will endeavour to collect your recycling (black bin) and garden waste (brown bin) on your regular day, but this is likely to become increasingly difficult.
Please put your bins out as normal on your scheduled collection day. Please leave your bin out all day as the crews may be running later than usual. If your bin is not collected please leave it out, where it will not cause an obstruction, and our teams will collect as soon as they can. This may not be until your next scheduled collection day. We will collect excess recycling which can be left in clear plastic sacks or a cardboard box next to your bin. If your rubbish collection is missed, we will collect any extra rubbish which can also be left in sacks next to your bin.
We will continue to update our website and social media pages regularly so please keep an eye out for service updates in your area.
For people suffering with symptoms associated with coronavirus (COVID-19) or self-isolating at home, please follow Public Health England guidelines regarding the disposal of waste. Thank you very much for your cooperation and patience during this difficult time.

Sheet Parish Council have been asked what they are doing in response to the Climate Emergency, take a look at the response HERE.
The morning dawned clear and bright and over 40 residents, armed with shovels, came along to plant their fruit tree in the new orchard in the Millennium Field. Special thanks to Councillor Tony Clear who headed up the project and to EHDC and the Sheet Village Charitable Trust who donated a total of 17 trees. Thanks also to Bill Robinson, our Lengthsman, who donated his time to planting the hedgerow whips.
We look forward to seeing the fruits of your labour next year!

Sheet Parish Council meet on the second Tuesday of every month (except August) at the Village Hall for a full meeting. The agenda is posted on the village noticeboards outside the village hall and in Pulens Lane, as well as on this website. Our elected representative from Hampshire County Council is usually present every month. Our EHDC representative is occasionally present.
Parishioners and members of the public are welcome to attend all meetings and one agenda item allows for brief 'public comment'.
The next full meeting of the Parish Council is on Tuesday 7th April 2020 at 7.30pm, in the Village Hall. The agenda is available here.
Planning matters are normally considered in the full council meeting, but occasionally we hold an additional planning meeting which is advertised on noticeboards and the website as above.
The minutes of Parish Council meetings and any additional Planning meetings are available on the Meeting Minutes page of this website. These are in draft form until formally approved.
