  • Cllr Margaret Hofman has been pushing for more Green Belt to be protected
    Article: May 19, 2021

    Government plans to develop fields around communities across Three Rivers have been slammed by the Lib Dems in Three Rivers. The Lib Dem Council Group is refusing to propose some sites for consultation suggested by owners for new housing development.

    Government regulations prioritise land on the edge of existing settlements for new building. However Liberal Democrats, who last week retained control of Three Rivers Council with an increased majority, say the pandemic has increased the need for outdoor recreation and leisure easily accessible from people's homes.

  • Little Green Lane
    Petition: Apr 12, 2021

    The Croxley Lib Dem team are calling for Little Green Lane to be closed to motor traffic, similar to how the local Lib Dems successfully had Rousebarn Lane closed to motor traffic back in the 1990s. This would tackle the rise in fly-tipping there and preserve its rural nature for future generations.

  • Street lights in Croxley Green
    Petition: Mar 25, 2021

    Three Rivers Liberal Democrats have once again called on Hertfordshire County Council to end its policy of turning off residential street lighting at a fixed time.

    Lib Dem Campaigner Paul Rainbow said "We've all been appalled by the abduction and murder of a woman walking alone at night in London. Thankfully such events are extremely rare, but people have a right to be out at night without the added fear of walking in the dark. This is particularly important for women who are made to feel more vulnerable because of the County Council's policy of turning off the lights when people may still be out and about."

    Comment by Cllr Stephen Giles-Medhurst:

    I would like to echo the comments made by others on London's Labour Mayor suggestion of a £5.50 "London Boundary charge" on residents in Three Rivers and Herts driving into London. He can expect a serious and widespread campaign against it from Three Rivers Council.

    The Conservative Government are not listening to residents or to our council. It is clear that the government-imposed housing targets cannot be met without building on swathes of Green Belt.

    The facts

    In 2017-18 Three Rivers's target for building new homes was 180 per year, which Three Rivers were meeting.
