The civil parish of Sway is an area of approx 1320 hectares and 3600 residents, inside the New Forest National Park in Hampshire, UK. It comprises the village itself and a surrounding large rural area. 


Sway Parish Council comprises twelve parish councillors (currently eleven with one casual vacancy), who all give their time voluntarily to become holders of public office. When there is a vacancy, or during an election, you can become a parish councillor if you are: over 18 years old, a British citizen, a registered elector living in the civil parish of Sway, and have not been declared bankrupt or criminally sentenced in the last five years. 


The Parish Council is supported by a part-time Parish Clerk.
