The Council Offices and the Information Centre have now re-opened on a slightly restricted basis, in order to ensure the comfort and safety of both staff and visitors. Staff working in the Council Chamber and offices will currently be accessible between 9am and 2pm, Monday to Friday.

The Information Centre should now be open on Monday to Friday: 9.30am -2.30pm – and on Saturday mornings 10am – 1pm. There may be some fluctuation in that plan due to staffing changes, but we hope to keep those to a minimum. 

You can though, in any event, make contact with Lydia Housden, the Clerk to the Town Council, by e-mail:  or alternatively leave a message on 01442 823347 or email

Tring Town Council

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.

Each year the smaller authority’s Annual Governance and Accountability Return (AGAR) needs to be reviewed by an external auditor. The AGAR was approved by the Council on Monday 21st June 2021 for submission to the external auditor. Tring Town Council has today, the 25th June 2021, published notice of the period for the exercise of public rights. The approved sections 1 and 2 of the AGAR are available by following the link below.  This also gives the Notice of Public Rights with regard to inspecting the accounting records for the financial year 2020/21.

Please note that figures are unaudited and may be subject to change.

AGAR forms as issued by the External Auditor are exempt from the accessibility requirements because of the nature of these documents. However all other documents related to the Annual Return are subject to Website Content Accessibility Guidelines.  The council understands that the below links might not currently be accessible but we are working towards making them accessible. As it is a legal requirement to publish these documents right now they cannot be taken down in the meantime. However if you are experiencing any difficulty with the below links and viewing the documents, or require assistance with any part of the site, please contact us during normal office hours and we will be happy to assist. If you wish to report or discuss an accessibility issue, again please contact Tring Town Council by e-mail to: or 01442 823347.
