Dear Residents,

Village Day

What a cracking Village Day we had this year! Who could have thought that after the disappointment caused by the weather last year this year could have been so different. We had a great time meeting many of you and as always getting your feedback on what are your local concerns, over a glass of something of course. We raised over £350 from the sale of Pimms and once we've totted up the moneys we will be giving the proceeds to Watford Mencap, who have a residential home in Chorleywood.

See our report Chorleywood Village Day - Pimms o'clock at the CRA stand which includes a couple of photos.

Play Area consultation

Please take the time to consider this consultation and respond by Friday 9th August.
Go to http://www.iplayoutdoors.co.uk - for more information read on below

You may remember around this time last year there was a consultation carried out by Three Rivers District Council on a proposed new Play Area for Chorleywood, where they were asking where in Chorleywood would the community prefer a new Play Facility. The majority view from that exercise was to focus on The Common, and between the Parish Council, District Council and other local stakeholders (including ourselves) a report was drawn early in 2013 up that put forward many options of locations on the common. Concensus has put forward "Area 13" as a preferred location - this is just behind the permissive parking area by the Shepherds bridge. The project group have been aware of the sensitive nature of the common at all times, and the concept of the scheme is for it to blend into and compliment the environment.

The District Council have also gone out to tender for potential layouts and designs, and the community now has until Friday 9th August to respond to their consultation. You can find out more on the District Councils websitewww.iplayoutdoors.co.uk and there you can see all the plans and respond online. Alternatively you can consult the plans in the Library or the Parish Council offices and leave your comments there.

We've written up a page on our own website on this latest stage of consultation. We hope that there is suitable consensus for the project to move forward, and that the necessary permissions can be obtained from the Secretary of State to approve the use of the common land for this community purpose. For more background on the whole issue, just to to our Play Area webpage, where you can see all the updates and history over the past few years (most recent at the top).

Health

Death of Dr Paul Strickland - a local healthcare hero
Have you benefitted from the scanning facilities at Mount Vernon. The man behind the facility who gives his name to it recently passed away.

we're pleased to be able to report that after 20+ years of indecision, the plan to extend the Metropolitan Line from Croxley to Watford Junction has been approved. It should be constructed and in service by 2016.
