At the Extraordinary Meeting of Little Gaddesden Parish Council on 4 January 2024 there was unanimous agreement that LGPC commence legal proceedings seeking to nullify the agreement reached between Dacorum Borough Council and the occupant  of the land.

LGPC continues to seek funding for this; and continues to have constructive dialogue with DBC.

If you have not yet pledged and would like to support this action, please read the information which has been sent out in recent LGPC communications regarding this (extract below)

If you have made a pledge, please would you transfer the money asap and before January 7th if possible, details below.

Raising Money and Pledges

Any amount of money is welcome. The money to be raised will be held in a separate LGPC bank account. The money will be used exclusively for any legal work concerning Church Road. When/if an agreed position is reached with Dacorum, or a decision is taken not to pursue legal action, any unspent money would be returned either in whole or on a pro-rata basis. Residents should be aware that any legal action is inherently risky and expensive and for example if the legal case was lost there would be a strong possibility no monies would be returned and the current agreement would remain in force.

Monies will not be returnable in any other case i.e. you cannot just ask for your money back once paid.

Pledges at this stage should be made by way of email sent to the stating Church Road Pledge in the subject line.

Emails and transfers should be received by the 7th January 2024 so we have an idea of what will be possible.  The details for the actual payment in January are as below.

LGPC Bank Account Details are as Follows:

Sort Code: 60-02-21,   Account Number: 54-22-10-64,    Bank: NATWEST

Account Name: PARISH CNCL LITTLE GADDESDEN, Reference: Your Surname

To keep our logistics simple, could you also send the Clerk a note confirming your name, amount, date of transfer, phone number, email and bank details (for returns)…(
