Car Parking, Village Centre
Many residents will be aware of the problem of parking at the Village Centre and LGVA has been campaigning for several years for a resolution. As a result DBC has posted a planning application to extend the car park at the side of the village hall to provide an additional 24 spaces. The plan is to site an additional 20 spaces at the top of the playing field in the corner adjacent to the existing car park as this area is rarely, if ever, used. The other 4 spaces will be gained at the bottom of the existing car park in the area kept clear for vehicles circulating.
Controlled parking will also be introduced in front of the shops and will, if necessary, be extended to the hall car park.
Access will be available to the field for mowing, etc, but steps will be taken to ensure that unauthorised access will be very difficult.
Library Volunteers Wanted
Our library is to become a ‘Community Library’ which will be run by volunteers, similar to models which already exist across small towns and villages in Hertfordshire including Kings Langley, Chorleywood and Wheathampstead.
The library service needs to recruit a number of local volunteers to eventually take over the running of our branch. Full training will be given and hours will be flexible and on an entirely voluntary basis.
