posted 3 Oct 2018, 10:04 by Phil Ellis   [ updated 3 Oct 2018, 10:04 ]

Catherine Blandford has agreed to take on the role of Neighbourhood Watch (NHW) Chairperson for Chorleywood. Catherine has been a NHW road coordinator for over ten years and has done a lot in that time to help foster a community spirit and to sign residents onto OWL. Catherine’s role will include liaising with our local police force and Parish Council and representing Chorleywood NHW at Chorleywood Residents' Association meetings.

David Clark and Stuart Parish, who assist Philip Waine (our Watch Liaison Officer) by signing residents onto OWL, are exploring with Catherine and Philip ways of working together in the future.

Co-op Building

posted 26 Sep 2018, 13:26 by Phil Ellis   [ updated 26 Sep 2018, 13:26 ]

Following discussions with the Residents' Association, the applicant for planning permission at 16 - 18 Lower Road (the Co-op building) has decided to withdraw the application to give time to properly consider the concerns of local residents and to consider the extent to which these might be addressed.

In the light of this, we understand that the 4th October meeting will no longer occur. The applicant may wish to hold a public meeting when this review process is completed.
