Welcome to Tring Town Council’s website.
Tring Town Council provides a valuable service for the community and represents the town’s interests in various ways. Working effectively and professionally with both the Borough and County Councils as well as other stakeholders, we ensure that the interests and assets of Tring are protected.
Part of our role is to enhance and promote the cultural life and wellbeing of Tring. We seek to improve the local environment, raising standards of recreational facilities and helping to meet the community’s needs.
The Town Council welcomes input from Tring residents and everyone is encouraged to attend the Council’s meetings. We have various responsibilities, which include managing the town’s allotments, discussing and commenting on planning applications in the town (Dacorum Borough Council has the final decision on planning issues), managing the Council’s properties in the town, and monitoring the town’s public areas.
We also support Tring by providing small grants to voluntary and community groups in the town, and through a range of initiatives such as the Tring Youth Council and Tring Together.
An invitation from Dacorum Borough Council:
The Borough Council is carrying out a residents’ survey on their current priorities, as they want to provide the best possible service to their residents. To achieve this they need local people, from all walks of life, to tell them what they do well and what they could do better. The survey is currently live (closing date 5pm Friday, 9 November). They want to reach as many people as possible, so they’ve asked us to make the link to the survey available to visitors to this website. To make your views known, go to:
