Hertfordshire rights of way map

Posted: Thu, 12 Sep 2019 11:13 by Claire Graham

Over 2,000 miles of Hertfordshire's public countryside footpaths, bridleways and byways are now available on Google maps.

Launched this month, the new tool – believed to be one of the first developed in the country - means the map can be loaded onto a smartphone, making it easier for users to follow their position on the map as they go. More »

Developed by Hertfordshire County Council's Countryside and Rights of Way staff, along with colleagues in the Web Team, this innovation will make the county's rights of way much more accessible and help promote them to new digital audiences.

Councillor Phil Bibby, Cabinet Member for Environment, said: "As well as being a valuable tool to promote Hertfordshire's network of over 2,000 miles of rights of way, this new map supports the goals of the new Local Transport Plan with its emphasis on active travel.

"It is also intended to encourage more people to get out and active in the countryside, improving health and wellbeing. » Less

The Station Pub

Posted: Thu, 12 Sep 2019 10:15 by Claire Graham

Following an overwhelming show of support from residents in June this year, Knebworth Parish Council has been working on a bid to purchase The Station Public House.

We are pleased to announce that we now have an offer agreed with the owner and are working to complete a transaction in the near future. We hope that this will result in providing a more secure future for what we believe is a valuable asset at the heart of our local community. More »

As outlined in our survey leaflet, we are also working to secure a tenant landlord in line with our business plan and aiming to have the pub re-opened as soon as possible. Therefore if you are aware of any small businesses or individuals, with relevant experience within the industry, interested in operating a pub on a commercial basis then please ask them to contact Claire Graham the clerk of the council at clerk@knebworthparishcouncil.gov.uk as soon as possible.

We would like to thank everyone for their support, in particular the SOSPUB group, who have been fundamental in generating support in the village for saving the pub as well as raising funds to fight the prior planning application. » Less

Brown Bin Garden Waste Collection

Posted: Thu, 12 Sep 2019 09:58 by Claire Graham

If you haven't renewed your brown bin garden waste subscription to North Hertfordshire District Council then you need to do it now to prevent any disruption in the service.

This year NHDC is issuing stickers for residents to attach to their bin(s) as proof of subscription. These will be mailed out to those who subscribe and will clearly indicate to collection crews those households which have paid for the garden waste service. Those who already subscribe to the service can put out garden waste bin(s) as usual whilst waiting for the permit to arrive. More »

Residents can re-subscribe in four ways:

  • Go to www.north-herts.gov.uk/gardenwaste
  • Call Urbaser directly on 0800 3286023 to make the payment over the phone
  • Stop by the NHDC Council Offices and use the payment kiosk in the Reception area
  • By post: to NHDC Council Offices, Gernon Road, Letchworth SG6 3JF. Write on the back of a cheque Brown bin waste, name, address and state if you want a receipt.
