Letter from Red House Surgery re: Land to South of Shenley Hill

As the inquiry is not being live streamed we attach this letter which was lodged at the appeal yesterday and was agreed by the inspector that he would accept it (even though it was circulated late) for consideration at the inquiry. APC is just bringing this matter to the residents of the parish as this has become a public document.

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.
