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.

Tring Town Council carried out a public consultation to seek views from residents on the sale of a Tring Town Council Asset (Land at Bulbourne). An explanation leaflet was distributed to 4500 houses in Tring and local villages in the ‘Tring & Villages Local Directory’ – August 2021 edition. In addition, leaflets were hand-delivered to Bulbourne (around 27), West Leith (around 36) and Hastoe (around 29). Copies were also placed on notice boards around the Town, on the Town Council website, and at regular intervals on Twitter and a Facebook page. 

The consultation ran for six weeks, finishing on Monday 27 September 2021. Click here to view the Dacorum Borough Council design statement and a plan of the site. (For information only, as consultation has now ended).

The survey has now closed, with 222 responses received (180 via the online survey and 42 by email or post). A brief synopsis of the results from the public survey can be read here: Survey results – Proposed sale of asset – this has been compiled by the Town Clerk. At the meeting of the Town Council on 25th October 2021, it was decided to proceed with the sale at this stage. However, a final decision has not yet been made and there are many further steps required. The current position is that Dacorum Borough Council requires the Town Council to agree to Heads of Terms along with a conditional contract before they will submit their planning permission. Draft Heads of Terms and conditional contracts will be prepared and, once final drafts are available, they will be presented to the Council for approval. The conditional contract would not be entered into until and if the Council votes to do so.
