Save Our PCSOs!

Aldenham Parish Council (APC) is very disappointed with the recommendation to remove funding of the PCSOs in Hertsmere and direct this funding towards the employment of extra enforcement officers for Hertsmere Borough Council. APC believe the PSCOs bring great value to the local community and provide a visible presence creating a safer neighbourhood.

APC has written to HBC to question whether these enforcement officers will be value for money, bring the same level of service and be an integral part of the community in a way that is equal to the current PCSOs. To read our letter in full, please click here.

Annual Canvass

The annual canvass is the process of updating the electoral register. Every year, we must ensure that our register is as complete and accurate as it should be. This process usually takes place between July and November.

By law, we must send a Household Enquiry Form to every residential property within Hertsmere. These forms may be different depending on the response we need from each property. As a result, your neighbours may receive different communications than you do.

Hertsmere Borough Council will be using different types of canvass communications;

posted enquiry form
telephone canvass
household visit
The best thing to do is to respond as soon as you can to avoid further canvass enquiries.

If you have a query or need further information, please contact the registration team by emailing or call 020 8207 7481

In a record-breaking year Phillimore Recreation Ground is raising its prestigious Green Flag Award

Today, Aldenham Parish Council is celebrating after receiving a Green Flag Award for Phillimore Recreation Ground.

The news that Phillimore Recreation Ground has achieved the accreditation – the international quality mark for parks and green spaces – is testament to the hard work and dedication of the team that care for the green space so that everyone can enjoy it.

Keep Britain Tidy’s Green Flag Award Scheme Manager Paul Todd MBE said: “I would like to congratulate everyone involved at Phillimore Recreation Ground in achieving a Green Flag Award.

“Phillimore Recreation Ground is a vital green space for the community in Radlett, Herts, bringing people together and providing opportunities to lead healthy lifestyles. The staff and volunteers do so much to ensure that it maintains the high standards of the Green Flag Award and everyone involved should feel extremely proud of their achievement.”

The Green Flag Award scheme, managed by environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy under licence from the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities, recognises and rewards well-managed parks and green spaces, setting the benchmark standard for the management of green spaces across the United Kingdom and around the world.
