Email update 17 November 2012

Autumn is certainly upon us, and although the brief covering of snow we had one weekend at the end of October was enough to warn us that winter is on its way. The Bookshop have been putting Chorleywood on the map with a host of authors descending upon the village for various events for Chorleywood LitFest, but now we're in the run up to Christmas.

Chorleywood Christmas Festival

Chorleywood Christmas Festival - Friday 7th Dec
Please put the evening of Friday 7th December in your diary for the Chorleywood Christmas Festival. Having been transformed to the new format event last year, this year stands to build on last years success. Make sure you keep this evening free and support the businesses and local associations in Chorleywood. The Residents' Association is planning to be there so pop down and see us.

Planning
Apart from the usual planning updates there are a couple of important items for the community.

Development proposals for the Long Island Hotel in Rickmansworth
A planning application has been put in to demolish the Long Island Exchange hotel and bar (former Victoria hotel - opposite the tube station) in Rickmansworth and erect approx 90 flats. Whilst this might not be the most salubrious establishment in the local area it is an important local amenity. Residents in Chorleywood can easily object to the proposals in terms of loss of local hotel accommodation, and if you have time to look at the proposed plans you may want to form your own opinion on those! You have until Friday 22nd November to register an objection with the planning department.

Changes to Planning Application Fees - 22 Nov 2012
The government announced yesterday that planning application fees are going up. So if you're on the point of submitting an application, get it in before Friday!

Regular weekly lists of applications for Chorleywood:
Planning Applications, week commencing 29th October 2012
Planning Applications, week commencing 5th November 2012
Planning Applications, week commencing 12th November 2012

Transport

Hertfordshire Highways Locality Meeting
We were recently polling residents for feedback on local Highway issues and following a meeting held with Christopher Hayward on Tuesday the local County Councillor for Chorleywood we're collating these into a single document and we'll continue to progress this with Herts Highways.

Play Area

Let’s All Go Out to Play!!
A massive thank you to everyone in Chorleywood who responded to the recent consultation on the Play Area in Chorleywood with a very large response. The results have now been tabulated and are are available on the TRDC website and go to the Leisure committee at TRDC on the 21st November. The council will also be presenting the results of the survey on Monday 3rd December at the Chorleywood Local Area forum, 2pm in the Memorial Hall.

Education

The new Free School - Statutory Consultation
A statutory consultation is now open for the proposed Free School in the WD3 postcode area. All residents are encouraged to spend a few moments completing the consultation form online

Environment

Dog Control Orders for Chorleywood House Estate
It looks like after further consultation that Dog Control orders will not be implemented in Chorleywood House Estate, but dog mess continues to be a concern.

About the Association

Partners
We've recently reviewed our communication strategy and we'll be working with the Chorleywood Magazine more in the future for ongoing communications. We certainly got a lot of feedback on Highway issues from residents reading the article we did in the November magazine.
