Welcome to the Netley Marsh Parish Council website

Netley Marsh is a small village in the New Forest.  Close to Southampton and the M27 yet the village is very rural in character.

We hope you find the information in the menus on the left useful. 

Dogs on the Recreation Ground: at the November meeting it was agreed that a line will be marked on the recreation ground, from the north edge of the Community Hall building to the west (top) hedge of the field.  To the north (right as you stand at the five bar gate looking up the field)

Dogs on leads will be allowed

to the south, (left as you stand at the five bar gate looking up the field) no dogs will be allowed.
