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 has an attractive village centre and its own special nature reserve at Knowle Hill, maintained by volunteers. The community association runs an annual carnival as well as other traditional village events.
Horton Heath is perhaps the most rural of the three villages. It has a lively community centre which is used by a variety of groups 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.
