Imminent Roadworks in village plus update on the Telefonica Mast

Hi All

Just to warn you of a number of roadworks going on including potential road closures.

Pedley Hill, towards Studham. Today until Friday. Just over the crossroads at the bottom of the hill, heading from Hudnall to Studham, possible road closure, may be dealing with that flood issue, you might need to change your route.

Beacon Road Ringshall, They are dealing with the Phase2 flooding works and at some stage over the next week or so may need to close the road in that vicinity, look out for warning signs.

Ringshall to Berkhamsted Road (B4506) Some surface dressing work may cause delays this week.

Hudnall Lane (between junction with Nettleden Road and Hudnall Common/Grovells junction). Some Surface dressing works. Contractors board says road may be closed 9.30am to 4.00pm 8th – 10th April,  ie. Thursday to Saturday.


Just to advise that the promoter has extended the pre-application consultation period for the mast until 21st April. If you have not already given us your view please do so. Hard copy of proposal is on the notice board at the shop and a digital copy is on the Parish Council web site.

The Parish Council and residents hired a cherry picker last week to see what a 25 metre mast would look like. It was very obvious from a number of sensitive locations in the village. A report is being compiled on this matter at the moment and it will be discussed at the next Parish Council meeting on 19th April.



Telecommunications Mast proposed in Hudnall

Telefonica / O2 are proposing to install a 25 metre high mast at Holly Tree Farm off Hudnall Lane, to fill a gap in the network for Smart meter operation and to provide a mobile phone service. The Parish Council has been sent details of the proposal and we would like your feedback prior to the next Parish Meeting on 15th March.

Please speak to any of the Councillors or email the Clerk on the address below

Details and a Q&A can be found below. The Parish Council will add documents and further information as soon as it is available.

Please note that the consultation period offered to the Parish Council in the letter from the promoter Cornerstone has been extended to 5th April.

Important note regarding Dacorum’s Development Plans





Dacorum Borough Council is in the process of preparing a plan for future development in Dacorum covering the period from now until 2038.  Dacorum has just published the plan and wants to get the views of local residents.

This is a major piece of work which will determine the future housing and infrastructure development in our area for the next twenty years. All Parish and Town Councils and interested societies and groups will make responses to the consultation and individuals are being encouraged to make their own responses. This is your opportunity to say what you think about the plan and influence the way our area is developed.

The protection of Church Road from development

The Council would like to publicise a planning application opposite the Church in Church Road, where the applicant wants to erect fencing, create a new access to the road and relocate the route of the footpath that comes out opposite the Church. People are concerned that allowing the application would set a precedent for how the rest of the land is used, the threat being the creation of multiple accesses to Church Road and fencing criss-crossing the historic open pasture land.

The Parish Council have responded (attached) and although the official response time has for the Parish Council has now passed any comments made by members of the public are taken into consideration for a while yet.

Plot 17 Church Road response 20-01927-FUL- 5th August

75th Anniversary of the VE Day Celebrations

Whilst we can’t all celebrate special events the way we would all want to at the moment, it is still the 75th anniversary of VE day on 8th May.
Here are some ideas to commemorate the formal acceptance by the Allies of World War II of Nazi Germany’s unconditional surrender of armed forces on 8 May 1945.

The government’s official website – – has lots of downloadable resources, including bunting and posters to colour in, 1940’s style menus and instructions on how to Lindy Hop by way of exercise!

Do also have a look at the Royal British Legion website – which has details of:
• A live VE Day 75 livestream at 11.15am – with national moments of Remembrance and thanksgiving, including a Two Minute Silence
• The Words to We’ll Meet Again (see below)
• A VE Day learning pack for children aged 7-14 years.

As a Village I hope you will join the members of the Parish Council and the British Legion in:-

• Putting out Union Jack bunting and waving flags.
• At 3pm, giving a cheer (or even raising a glass) and checking the skies in case the VE plane with its VE Day banner is coming our way
• At 9pm, leaving your doorsteps and joining in a country-wide rousing rendition of “We’ll Meet Again” (which takes on a whole new resonance in these times).
