Transport and Environment

The Transport and Environment Committee considers local transport matters relating to roads, transport, parking, pavements.

In each case, the Committee deals with those issues within its powers, and reports and works to influence the relevant authorities for action where a particular matters lies outside its remit.

The environment is of very high priority to the people of Berkhamsted and so it is for the Town Council. We are responsible for the Millennium Garden and the Gateway Garden and for Birtchnell's Copse in Ivy House Lane.

With the Borough Council, we were successful in obtaining the Green Flag Award for Canal Fields, and work together and with local residents to ensure that this area is properly maintained and developed for the benefit of the community.

The Town Council also works to influence the Borough Council on street cleaning, litter, provision and maintenance of parks and green spaces and childrens' play areas.

The Transport and Environment Committee oversees the work and receives and adopts the minutes of the

  • Better for Berkhamsted Working Group

Minutes of this group are included in the agenda and papers for Transport and Environment Committee meetings.

The Committee also notes minutes of the Parking Provision and Management Forum comprising Councillors and resident and business representatives and the Parish Paths Partnership.
