Community Survey for Neighbourhood Plan - extended to 7 October

posted 30 Sep 2016, 12:53 by Bricket Wood Residents' Association   [ updated 30 Nov 2016, 11:56 ]

Have you completed the Community Survey yet?  There’s still time – the deadline has been extended to Friday 7 October!

This is because a number of households in the Parish did not receive questionnaires, so they have now been sent replacements.  The extension to the deadline is to give them – and others  who have yet to do so, ample time to complete and return their surveys.

The Community Survey is an important element of the St Stephen Neighbourhood Plan.  It’s the opportunity for you to comment and cast your opinion on issues that are fundamental to the future face of the three villages in the Parish – Bricket Wood, Chiswell Green and Park Street.

The Survey came through your door with the Autumn edition of the Parish Newsletter, but if you’ve mislaid it or another member of your family would like to complete it (you never know, they may have different opinions!) there are a number of ways to do this.
If you use a hard copy of the Survey questionnaire, once you’ve ticked the boxes of your choice please put your Survey form in one of the Collection Point boxes in Bricket Wood BY 7 OCTOBER 2016.  These are listed at the bottom of the form:
  • The Post Office, 107 Oakwood Road, Bricket Wood
  • The Newsagents, 89 Old Watford Road, Bricket Wood
  • The Store, 23 Black Boy Wood, Bricket Wood.
Alternatively, you can deliver it personally to the Parish Centre, Station Road, Bricket Wood – 

BUT HURRY, TIME IS RUNNING OUT FOR YOU TO HAVE YOUR SAY – AND WE NEED YOUR VIEWS URGENTLY!

It’s important for everyone to have their say, so there is a separate Youth Survey for Bricket Wood’s young people at www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/6J2V5F2 so please persuade them to have their say too!

Bricket Wood Common, Woodland Work Report: 19 September 2015

posted 6 Oct 2015, 13:44 by Bricket Wood Residents' Association   [ updated 30 Nov 2016, 12:00 ]

The following has been provided by Henry Holland-Hibbert to St Albans District Council, St Stephen Parish Council and the Bricket Wood Residents' Association.  It is a progress report on the woodland work he is undertaking in Bricket Wood Common:

We will be starting the woodland maintenance work in Mutchetts Wood and on Bricket Wood Common before the end of September. The woodland machinery will access along the new track that has been laid across Mutchetts Paddocks and timber will be extracted to the loading bay in the paddock for later collection. The main area of work will be in Mutchetts Wood including the woodland that forms part of the SSSI – this is the area to the west of Bricket Wood Common and to the east of the railway line.

All trees to be extracted have been marked. Trees of poor quality have been selected or trees that are too close together and are not allowing sufficient light to reach the woodland floor. The objective is to allow the better trees more space thus enabling them to flourish as well as allowing future natural regeneration on the woodland floor.

Work will also take place along the footpath that forms the western edge of Bricket Wood Common and runs north from Mutchetts Paddocks. The objective is to open the footpath, remove dead or decaying trees that might present a hazard and create a wider edge to the path. Not all dead or decaying timber or timber that has fallen naturally will be removed, this does provide a valuable ecological habitat for woodland bugs and grubs etc.
