CRA 100 Club

If you appreciate the work we do for our residents why not help us financially by joining our 100 Club? Unfortunately our running costs cannot be covered by sponsorship and voluntary donations alone. Membership of the 100 Club is open to all and by setting up a Standing Order with us you not only will be helping us raise much needed funds but you will also be joining in the excitement of winning monthly cash prizes where the odds of winning are quite high! See our 100 Club page for full details.


Here's our list of priorities for the next 12 months as described by our chairman at the 2017 AGM

  • Work more closely with our Resident Representatives
  • Engage with and monitor progress with the updating of the Local TRDC Plan
  • Key involvement with CW Neighbourhood Plan led by CPC
  • Keep a watching brief supporting the new central hospital proposals
  • Increase influence with local authorities
  • Increase e-newsletter circulation to residents
  • Work with Chorleywood Magazine regarding increasing the footfall in our village
  • Make greater use of the green boxes for resident feedback not on-line
  • Encourage residents to support us financially by voluntary donations
  • Implement sponsorship opportunities from residents and local businesses
  • Establish a new Memorial Garden in the Village
  • Continue to add value and make a difference for the community

  • HCC ask residents NOT to use FixMyStreet for reporting highway faults (including potholes) Residents are being asked to report any highway faults through the Hertfordshire County Council website - Highways Fault Reporting (https://www.hertfordshire.gov.uk/faultreporting/mapsearch.php) and not to use the 'FixMyStreet' website. Highway fault information reported through 'FixMyStreet' ties up HCC's resources but more importantly, it is not compatible with their system and as a result prevents them from providing the level of response they want to. HCC have said, for this reason, they are seriously considering rejecting further faults reported through this service. HCC are launching an upgrade to their own reporting system in April.

  • Speeding and inconsiderate parking in Shire Lane We have asked our PCSOs to monitor inconsiderate parking near the brow of the hill (on the left hand side when travelling up Shire Lane) as this, combined with motorists' speeding, has already resulted in a few near-misses. A few years ago, a local resident had a serious crash as a result, in which one of the cars was a write-off.

  • Carousel cancel the 336 bus service to Cedars Village Carousel Buses Ltd operate the 336 bus route which passes through Chorleywood, stopping at the station as well as various stops on the A404 and until very recently, Cedars Village.  Carousel, without any notice, removed this vital stop for the many residents of Cedars Village who don't have a car. Carousel initially told us that they had removed the stop because road closures in central Watford had increased the length of the route and it had to be reduced somewhere else to compensate. However, they later admitted that the real reason was commercial. CRA is supporting residents in their fight to have this vital service reinstated.

Fix My Street

Please note that we have been advised by HCC not to use Fix My Street for highways issues, including potholes, but to use their website instead. See this News item.

Currently TRDC encourages the use of Fix My Street, hence the information given below!

We continue to monitor the situation.
