The Council can confirm today that Cllr Dudley Edmunds (Dickinsons Ward) has resigned his position of Cllr.
We have taken the decision today to close footpath 7 for the safety of Croxley Green residents.
An extremely large tree has fallen and is blocking the footpath. There are also multiple large branches dangerously hanging over the walkway.
Footpath 7 can be entered via The Green and is a popular footpath with dog walkers who use the steps as a route down to the River Chess. The footpath will be closed from both directions.
We advise that all residents please avoid the area until it can be made safe.
We will strive to get the footpath back open again as soon as possible.
We will keep residents updated via our website and social media pages with the latest developments.
We apologise for any inconvience that this may cause to residents but hope that you understand why we have taken the decision to close the footpath on this occasion.
The footpath will remain closed before arboreal works can be undertaken tomorrow. It is unclear at this time if the footpath will re-open before Thursday.
The footpath will now remain closed until further notice.
Following a site inspection from the arborealists yesterday it transpires that the fallen tree is in a very dangerous position. The tree has fallen on a slope and as such any works carried out on the trunk would leave the root ball in a precarious and unsafe position. This means that specialist equipment, including a crane, will be needed to make the area safe. The situation has been compounded by the recent wet weather that we have been experiencing.
We continue to ask that residents please avoid the footpath for their own safety.
It is not known when the footpath will re-open but we will keep residents updated.
All works carried out will not come at a cost to Croxley Green Parish Council.
The Parish Council is currently seeking your views on how the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) which is received by the Parish Council should be spent. For more information, please go to our Consultation page.
At their Council meeting on June 28th Croxley Green Parish Council agreed to supply a £7000 grant to the All Saints WW1 Memorial Glass Doors Committee. The Memorial Glass Doors will be situated at All Saints Church and will commemorate the centenary of the end of WW1. The Council had previously made a budget provision of £7000 in anticipation of the awarding of the grant due to the size of the grant being asked for. Although there was not a consensus amongst all Cllrs a majority of Cllrs did support the awarding of the grant and as such it was approved. The consecration of the WW1 memorial doors will take place at All Saint’s Church on Sunday October 14 at 4pm. The Bishop of St. Albans will be attending. This is just one of the ways that the Parish Council will be commemorating the 100 year anniversary of the end of WW1. This year’s Remembrance Parade will be larger than previous year’s and will also feature a separate service at the War Memorial at 11am. More details about the parade will be available in the coming months. Residents are also urged to visit the Croxley Green History Project website to find out more about Croxley Green during the time of the Great War.
