Do not open your door to any unknown persons or call out to the person to identify themselves before you decide to open your door.

Press Release | Chorleywood Post Office

Chorleywood Post Office has been closed for some time following a break in. The Parish Council are now able to advise that the Post Office in its current location will re-open, however this is not likely to happen in the near future, as there was substantial damage caused internally, which needs to be repaired. The Insurance Company are currently dealing with this.

It is also known that the owner of the post office, wishes to redevelop the site into flats, which would result in the loss of the post office.

The Parish Council now can advise that the Co-Op are looking at the possibility of having post office services within their shop, following their refurbishment. In the interim they have applied to head office to have an ATM housed within their premises in order that residents can at least get cash.

This is not an ideal situation in the short term but, please be assured that as a statutory body the Parish Council will do everything in its power to ensure that a post office service remains in Chorleywood and careful negotiations are now taking place with Post Office Ltd.

Issued by Chorleywood Parish Council on 8th February 2019.

Three Rivers Local Plan: Potential Sites Consultation Document

Three Rivers District Council is preparing a new Local Plan that will set out a vision and framework for the future levels of growth within the District for the next 15 years until 2036. The Potential Sites Document contains sites that were put forward for consideration in the previous Local Plan process and were not allocated for development and those put forward by landowners, agents and developers as part of the Call for Sites consultations undertaken in 2017 and 2018.

The Potential Sites Consultation is an additional non-statutory consultation, providing the opportunity for stakeholders to comment on potential sites which will feed into the Strategic Housing and Employment Land Availability Assessment (SHELAA) process. The SHELAA is an assessment which identifies sites and broad locations with potential for development. It assesses their development potential, suitability for development and the likelihood of development coming forward. It is important to note that at this stage no decisions have yet been made on specific sites.

The Potential Sites Consultation Document and accompanying Sustainability Appraisal Working Note can be viewed on the Council’s website at: www.threerivers.gov.uk/egcl-page/new-local-plan. Hard copies can also be viewed in the Council’s offices in Rickmansworth (address below), the public libraries located within the District (Abbots Langley, Chorleywood, Croxley Green, Oxhey and Rickmansworth) and at the Parish/Town Councils’ offices.

Addresses and opening times of the libraries are listed on the Hertfordshire County Council website at:

www.hertfordshire.gov.uk/services/libraries-and-archives/library-opening-hours/library-opening-hours-and-locations.aspx

Responses to this consultation can be submitted to us in one of the following ways:

By email to: trldf@threerivers.gov.uk

By post to: Economic & Sustainable Development, Three Rivers District Council, Three Rivers House, Northway, Rickmansworth, Herts, WD3 1RL.

Although the initial consultation period has now closed, the above links to relevant documents are still available.

English Longhorn Cattle

On 8th October the 4 longhorn cattle left the Common after having a very successful 6 weeks of grazing down in the Maybushes. As you will be able to see, they have had a big impact on the scrub levels and hopefully, come the spring, their efforts will be realised by an increase in wildflower species. We look forward to their return in 2019.
