Chorleywood Post Office 

Thanks to the long-term and persistent efforts of our Executive Committee member Lisa Stewart, and the generosity and community spirit of Lords' Operations Director Tilak Patel, our temporary Post Office opened inside Lords on Wednesday 5th August run by our Post Mistress Kay Atwal.  

The temporary Post Office has proven to be very popular and we are delighted that it will continue until there is a permanent solution for the village.  Two Chorleywood businesses are in the process of applying to run it and we hope to be able to make an announcement soon.

Proposed changes to the Planning framework and new Neighbourhood Plan

The government recently issued two consultation papers proposing changes to the planning framework for England. These proposals will significantly impact Chorleywood by changing the target number of houses in the Three Rivers district, and the rules that control them.

See our Proposed Changes to the Planning Framework page for full details including our formal response to the first consultation and our response to the second. Thank you to all those residents who responded to signed up to support our responses.

The new Chorleywood Neighbourhood Plan has been approved and will now be considered as a material planning consideration. This allows the Parish more influence over key elements of the design of new developments to align them with the special characteristics and needs of Chorleywood identified in the plan.
