  2. Make our roads safer

What we do

Our 8 councillors are unpaid volunteers supported by a part-time paid clerk. Every year, we receive a small amount of your Council Tax to provide some local facilities. Sometimes we get extra funds through grants and awards.

Major services such as education, transport, rubbish collections, housing, council tax collections and fire and public safety are provided by Herts County Council and Dacorum Borough Council. We let them know how our residents feel about services in Northchurch and make representations on your behalf.

We own the Recreation Ground and Allotments, and we maintain 2 small cemeteries and some verges on the High Street. We use any additional money to support local charities and initiatives which we think will improve the social, economic, and environmental wellbeing of our community.

We welcome your views. If you have a suggestion about what our community needs, please contact us.

  • Skateboard mini-ramp
  • Basketball hoop
  • Full size football pitch
  • Mini football pitch

We are hoping to install new play equipment, skate park equipment, adult fitness equipment, and picnic tables in the autumn of 2021.  
This has now been accomplished.

There is more detail here.

Have a look at the equipment from our list of playground, skate park and adult fitness equipment suppliers.

If you have any ideas or suggestions, please contact the clerk or one of the councillors on the Recreation Ground Committee.
