West Overton forms part of the civil parish of Fyfield and West Overton, which has an elected parish council. It also falls within the area of Wiltshire Council. Both councils are responsible for different aspects of local government.
Note that both the ONS website and the Explorer map (see 'Sources' below) refer to separate civil parishes for Fyfield and West Overton. However the KDC website clearly refers to a joint parish and quotes both population and council membership.
St Michael and All Angels Church was built in 1878 and incorporates some features from the 13th century building it replaced.
