Car Parking, Village Centre
Our long awaited car park extension is now complete and we hope it will make life easier for people visiting the shops, local businesses and the Village Hall. In the new year controlled parking, with a limit of two hours, will be introduced to the car park in front of the shops. If the problem of all day parking persists we will then seek to introduce a time limit on the hall car park.
Green Lane - Temporary Closure
We have been notified that part of Green Lane, between Kingscup Avenue and Leverstock Green Primary School, will be closed to all traffic from Monday 18thto Friday 22ndFebruary. Whilst this is primarily due to the adoption of Kingscup Avenue, remedial work will be carried out on this stretch of road to repair a number of potholes, etc. It is possible that the closure to through traffic may extend as far as Hartsbourne Way although no work is planned for this section, this is at the request of Hertfordshire Highways for safety reasons although a final decision has yet to be reached.
This is half-term week but access will be available to the school at all times. A partial road closure will possibly remain for the following week but this will be controlled by temporary traffic lights.
East Hemel Plans – Latest Updates
For full details and the latest information on the planned East Hemel development, please visit that heading on the Environment page or follow the Red Link at the top of this page.
New Hospital Facility?? Among the comments about the new plans on the SADC website is an interesting representation from West Herts Hospitals NHS Trust which suggests that they may be considering building a new facility to serve Dacorum, St Albans and Watford on a site to suit all three locations, possibly in the East Hemel area. This appears to be a planned care facility rather than a new general hospital. For further details go to the foot of the East Hemel item on the Environment page.
Christmas Lights in the Village Centre
Once again our Christmas Lights in the Village Centre have proved immensely popular and we have received many complimentary comments. The cost of the lights is quite considerable and to cover it the Association has to rely on sponsorship. We are grateful to the following shops, businesses and residents for their generous support in 2018:
