Urgent Announcement | Colney Heath Common

The Parish Council has an obligation to protect common land. This obligation also means the Parish Council must enforce rules relating to the land for which it is responsible and ensure that these rules are observed.

You may be aware, there have been two major traveller incursions on the Common this year. This is unfortunate and something the Parish Council wants to prevent in the future. To secure the Common, protect parishioners from further distress and to ensure that no vehicles pass over common land without the necessary permissions we are going to be enhancing the existing wooden bollards along the Common boundary by the addition of more sturdy brushed metal-hooped bollards, static metal bollards and removable telescopic bollards. These works will begin on Monday 7th August 2017 and it is anticipated that the works will take 5 working days.

We would ask that if you do have any vehicles parked on common land that these are removed in preparation of the works to commence. We apologise for any inconvenience that the works may cause but we hope that the works will be carried out quickly and efficiently for the benefit of all residents within Colney Heath. If you have any questions about the works please do feel free to contact the office via telephone or email, where someone will respond to your query as quickly as possible.

I would like to thank you in advance for your cooperation in securing what is a beautiful Parish asset.

Welcome to the website of Colney Heath Parish Council.

Our council is made up of 9 members covering Highfield, Hill End and Colney Heath wards. Details of your councillors can be viewed here.

The parish of Colney Heath embraces a wide area of the district of St Albans and you can view a map of the parish boundary here.

Colney Heath lies within the “Colneys”, a name given to the two parishes of similar name located off the M25 near junction 22, which contain 67 acres of common and the Colne and Ellenbrook Rivers. To the north-east, the parish is dissected by the A414 main trunk dual carriageway route to Hatfield (known as the North Orbital). London Colney is a separate parish.

Over the forthcoming weeks we plan to add more features to the site and invite local clubs, groups and organisations to register links to the site or provide details to be included on our information pages.
