The two wards of Bishopstoke and Fair Oak & Horton Heath are to the north-east of the Borough and elect seven Councillors (two for each of the Bishopstoke wards and three for Fair Oak & Horton Heath) to represent around 20,000 residents.
The area is a mix of residential properties based around three villages together with open farmed countryside and beautiful woodland, riverside and country walks.
Riverside in Bishopstoke was the site of the ancient river carnival, a tradition revived in 1997 by the Parish Council and now continued by local volunteers. The village has many sites of special historic interest as it dates back to the Domesday Book.
Fair Oak is the larger of the three areas. With a village centre, Woodland Community Centre which offers a variety of sporting and community activities, local parks, including Knowle Park with play area, skate park and trig point which offers views to Durley and the Ageas Bowl and its own special nature reserve at Knowle Hill.
Horton Heath is perhaps the most rural of the three villages. It has a lively community centre which is predominately used for dance and fitness classes throughout the week. Situated at the most south-easterly part of the local area, it has easy access to the M27 motorway and the excellent shopping facilities of Hedge End.
