Welcome to the Chidham and Hambrook Parish Council and Village Website. The Parish of Chidham & Hambrook local authority area, formerly called ‘The Parish of Chidham’, is a small, attractive rural parish situated five miles west of Chichester and is comprised of the villages of Hambrook and Chidham with Nutbourne East, now also part of the Chidham & Hambrook parish, after the boundary realignment of 2014.

We live in a lovely and peaceful part of the world. There is a network of public footpaths for walkers, and the beautiful shore and intertidal mudflats of Chichester harbour to enjoy. Otherwise, the land is largely flat, and agricultural, but with sufficient variety and cover for a whole variety of wildlife to exist. With the combination of beautiful countryside and the expanses of Chichester Harbour so close, it is no surprise that walking, horseriding, and sailing are popular activities.

Keep up to date by following the Chidham and Hambrook Parish Council Facebook page.
