    Croxley's Lib Dem Councillors have met with the local GP leads to discuss options for a new GP surgery in Croxley Green as part of the post-Covid recovery. Currently there are two GP surgeries, Baldwins Lane and New Road, but neither are large enough to provide a full range of services. The NHS has identified Croxley Green as in need of a new GP surgery. Cllr Steve Drury said, "We had been working with the surgeries on potential new sites two years ago, but Covid disrupted that. Now with rapidly growing demand it is essential Croxley has a new GP surgery. We will continue to work closely with the surgeries on potential new sites and lobby the NHS for better funding". Cllr Margaret Hofman added, "I've been registered at Baldwins Lane Surgery for well over 30 years and know how much Croxley needs a new GP surgery. Residents deserve to be able to see their GP and get routine services locally, without needing to travel. We will keep residents updated on the progress and consult where possible."

  • Tories voting to let sewage dumping continue
    Petition: Oct 26, 2021

    Water companies dumped raw sewage into the River Chess for over 3,000 hours in 2020. Nationally, sewage was dumped into rivers for 3million hours!

    The Conservatives and local Conservative MPs Gagan Mohindra and Dean Russell are letting them get away with it and want taxpayers to pay to fix the problem.

    The Housing Minister has refused to better protect Green Belt following requests by Lib Dem MP Daisy Cooper, who represents parts of Three Rivers and St Albans Councils, and the leaders of the two Lib Dem-run Councils.

    The Conservative Housing Minster confirmed they will continue to use outdated 2014 population data, even though recent data would result in a lower housing target. The Minister also refused to stop including a Council's progress towards the housing target when considering planning appeals - including on Green Belt or even on sites in land protected as an Area of Outstanding of Natural Beauty (AONB).

    Article: Oct 21, 2021

    At the Council meeting on Tuesday, Three Rivers Council backed a motion from the ruling Liberal Democrat group calling on the government to change national planning rules which force the council to build homes in the Green Belt.

    Cllr Matthew Bedford, Three Rivers Cabinet Member for Planning Policy, said "Government housing targets are calculated using out-of-date forecasts from 2014, and enforced through the Planning Inspectorate which is an unelected quango. Elsewhere in Hertfordshire, the Planning Inspectorate has given permission for large new housing estates in the Green Belt, despite the harm caused. We want the government to change the rules and we have asked our local Conservative MPs to back us."
