Village Footpaths

2nd of November 2006

By the time you read this the new permissive footpath up Whippendell Hill will have been “officially” opened.
This is the final stage in the Parish Council’s project to link our footpaths to provide safe routes for walkers through and around the village and has  been achieved by County, Borough and Parish councils working together,
Thanks must be recorded to the generosity and co-operation of the landowner, Alan Smith and a lot of hard work by Councillor Mark Jarrad on behalf of Chipperfield Parish Council, Liz Rafferty on behalf of Kings Langley Parish Council, the Clerks of both Councils, Mark Carter from the  Countryside Management Service, Steve Dibben from Herts. Highways, Clayton Rae, Dacorum’s Rights of Way Officer, and the help of  Geoffrey Baldwin and his family. It is now possible to walk  from Chipperfield to Kings Langley in safety, away from the traffic.
This winter will see the start of another co-operative project. Hertfordshire County Council, Dacorum Borough Council, the Countryside Management Service and Chipperfield Parish Council will be working together to provide a Designated Disabled Access route through the woodland on The Common.
The improved route should be of benefit to both visitors and older, less nimble, residents as well as families with young children.
Footpath Survey
The Countryside Management Service are carrying out a survey of footpaths and would appreciate some help. There is no time scale and it involves walking our paths, checking signage, the condition of stiles, gates and path surfaces and entering your findings on a check list. If you would like to help please contact me. Mark Carter from CMS will meet you and explain what is required.
