  • Setting the annual precept and dispersing funds to support its activities
  • Commenting on planning and treeworks applications made to Test Valley Borough Council (TVBC)
  • Ensuring Hampshire County Council Highways dept. is aware of problems with highways, including potholes 
  • Ensuring landowners maintain footpaths and bridleways
  • Maintaining the village's recreation ground, war memorial, public seating and the bus shelter
  • Operating traffic calming measures through the village by deploying a Speed Indicator Device 
  • Organising the annual village clean-up day
  • Using its statutory powers to provide benefits to the community on matters not covered in the above list

There are eight seats on the council (six West Tytherley, one Frenchmoor, and one Buckholt). Elections are held every four years. Where a vacancy falls in the intervening period the vacancy will be advertised. A by-election will be held if ten electors request one within fourteen working days of the publication date of the vacancy notice, otherwise an eligible candidate may be co-opted by the existing councillors.
