06/05/2022 - Management of Public Rights of Way in Dacorum - Agency Agreement with Hertfordshire Country Council

That the Council enters in to the  Agency Agreement with Hertfordshire County Council for the delivery of the management and maintenance of Public Rights of Way in the Borough of Dacorum for the period 1st  April 2022 to 31st March 2027


The Borough Council currently delivers the management and maintenance function on public rights of way in the Borough under an Agency agreement with the Highway Authority, Hertfordshire County, Council (HCC), which is due to expire on the 31st March 2022


HCC are keen to secure the Agency arrangements up to 31st March 2027 to enable the service to be delivered locally rather than centrally from County Hall. To this end HCC have produced an agreement which covers all public footpaths, bridleways, restricted byways, byways and un-surfaced unclassified county roads in the Borough. Technical support is provided via HCCs Rights of Way unit.


To deliver the Agency agreement, the Borough Council employs a Countryside Access Officer who is fully funded by HCC with regard to salary, overheads,’ accommodation, training and travel. In addition a working budget is provided for improvement works on the rights of way network and there is opportunity available to bid for additional funding from HCC for additional works.

06/05/2022 - To undertake a statutory consultation on the proposal to introduce waiting restrictions in Station Road and to delegate the decision to introduce the restrictions, if applicable, to the Assistant Director Legal & Democratic Services in consultation w

  1. To engage consultants to undertake a statutory consultation on the proposal to introduce no waiting at any time restrictions on Station Road, Hemel Hempstead from the junction of the Plough roundabout to the junction with Cotterells.




  1. To delegate the decision to implement the proposal, if applicable, to the Assistant Director Legal & Democratic Services Council in consultation with the Portfolio Holder for Corporate & Contracted Services.



The reason for the decision is to deter inappropriate parking by commuters to the town centre and by local residents whose addresses do not qualify for a residents parking permit to park within the ‘C’ or ‘K’ Controlled Parking Zones.


Having considered the duty imposed under section 122 of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, It appears to the local authority that it is necessary and expedient to make an Order in the interests of:


  • avoiding danger to persons or other traffic using the road or any other road or for preventing the likelihood of any such danger arising


  • facilitating the passage on the road or any other road of any class of traffic (including pedestrians)
