East Hampshire is a county in Hampshire, England. Its council is based in Petersfield. Other towns are Alton and Bordon. The district was original to be known as the District Council of Petersfield. Consisting of 42 seats, it first met on 18 June 1973. For 10 months, it operated alongside the alternative city councils (Alton and Petersfield Municipal Boroughs and Alton and Petersfield Rural Boroughs). On 8 October 1973, the new council changed its name to what is now the East Hampshire District Council (commonly known as EHDC). The old council was dissolved on April 1, 1974, leaving only the EHDC. Sandy Hopkins was Hampshire's first co-CEO when he was appointed head of the EHDC and Havant Borough Council in October 2009. In June 2010, Council members approved the CEO's business case for a joint management team between the two agencies. The new team took over in October 2010 and consisted of five Executive Heads reporting to two Executive Directors.
