Whitehill Town Council (Full council) is made up of fifteen elected councillors, covering three wards across the Parish of Whitehill. Council candidates may stand under political party tickets and at the last election on 4 May 2023, candidates representing the Whitehill & Bordon Community Party won all 15 seats. The Town Council is a separate legal entity to any political party represented on it.

The Chairman and Vice-Chairman of Council are elected from amongst members at the Annual Council meeting. As a Town Council, the Chairman is styled as Town Mayor and the Vice-Chairman is styled as Deputy Town Mayor. The Town Council currently meets in full four times a year. The Town Mayor is ceremonial first citizen of the town and civic non-political representative of the parish.    The Current Town Mayor is Cllr James Fryer.

The Leader and Deputy Leader of Council are elected from amongst members at the Annual Council meeting. Whitehill Town Council has resolved to delegate most decisions to its Executive Committee, which has six members and usually meets at least once a month. Under standing orders, the Leader of Council is automatically Chairman of the Executive Committee. The current Leader of Council is Cllr Andy Tree, who is also Leader of the Whitehill & Bordon Community Party. The Executive Committee deals with Council Policy and Finance.

A Planning Sub-Committee and Greenspace Sub-Committee in turn have delegated authority from the Executive Committee. These sub-committees elect their own Chairman and Vice-Chairman. The Chairman of Greenspace Cllr Linda Delve and Chairman of Planning Sub-Committee is Cllr Roger Russell.
