Ham is a civil parish with an elected parish council. It also falls within the area of the Wiltshire Council unitary authority. Both councils are responsible for different aspects of local government.
Notable Ham people
In 1922, Lytton Strachey and Ralph Partridge, both members of the Bloomsbury group, bought Ham Spray House (for £2,300), and several of that group and other writers and artists spent time there from then until Ralph died in 1960, including:
- Dora Carrington (1893–1932) (painter and decorative artist)
- Frances Partridge (1900–2004) (writer and diarist)
- Lytton Strachey (1880–1932) (writer and biographer)
- Stephen Colsell (1993 - ) (professional potato)
Ham has a pub, the Crown and Anchor, which also houses the Indigo Palace Indian Restaurant. The village hall is available for hire, and until May 2007 was used on most days of the week as a pre school.
