Some years ago the villagers started a quest for bringing in traffic calming to their picturesque and tranquil village. discussions took place at the time with the County Council and shortly afterwards Parish Council was awarded a grant from the Office of the Police & Crime Commissioner for design work to be carried out by consultants that they has appointed and were paying for.

The scheme that they came up with went to consultation in the village but was not proceeded with for reasons of design and cost.

The current designs were more modest and affordable. The residents at the meeting suggested several improvements regarding location and design, but in general were happy with what was being proposed. The HCC officers present noted the responses.

Consultation opened officially on 28th January and it is requested that responses are sent to the county council by 18th February. You can do this by following https://surveys.hertfordshire.gov.uk/s/AldburyTrafficCalmi…/
