Following on from the success of Long Cutt play area the Parish Council is now turning its attention to Flamsteadbury Lane playground which is very old, outdated and limited. All the old apparatus will be removed apart from the swings and new play equipment installed with the addition of an outdoor gym and football goal. Funding for this project is coming from Parish Council earmarked reserves, St Albans District Council and the Big Lottery Fund.

For further details click here and please come and look at the display boards in the foyer of the Parish Centre from 11th - 28th July and let us know your thoughts. 




Redbourn Parish Council’s annual return needs to be reviewed by an external auditor appointed by the Smaller Authorities’ Audit Appointments Limited (SAAA).

The Draft Redbourn Neighbourhood Plan has now been completed and was approved by Redbourn Parish Councillors at a meeting of the Full Council on 20th October 2016. Following this, the draft plan was sent to St Albans District Council (SADC) requesting informal comments and feedback. SADC were very complementary about the plan with no significant changes required. We are now moving forward with the Neighbourhood Plan process and hope to have a public consultation in the autumn.

 St Albans' District Council proposed development plan for the next 15 years, which includes 2500 new houses in Redbourn Ward, was rejected by the government inspector. The District Council challenged this but lost their Judicial Review in the High Court in June and is now considering how to move forward. 

Redbourn Parish Council is against large-scale development on our greenbelt and submitted its objections to the inspector: click on RPC submission for details.
