River Colne Improvement

River Colne Improvement -Your Views Needed!

Groundwork East and Watford Borough Council are holding a River Colne consultation evening on Wednesday 17th November from 18.00 to 19.30 at the Watford Colosseum. This meeting is to discuss the issues facing the River Colne, and to tell you about the programme of events and projects that you can get involved with. This meeting is part of the ‘Rediscovering the River Colne’ project, a 10-year programme of significant improvement works to the River Colne in Watford. The evening will inform you about the programme of events and projects that you can get involved with.

Feedback received from Oxhey residents

From our discussions with residents, we know how much you value the River Colne and its surrounding habitat. Over the last few months your Oxhey Lib Dem team have been conducting a doorstep survey asking residents for your feedback on local issues. This survey is still continuing and we will share the results with you soon. Many residents on their survey forms have asked for improvements to the River Colne, especially as it flows through Oxhey Park.

Our River Needs You!

The partners of the River Colne are looking to find out what you think the problems are that the Colne is facing, and talk you through the accessibility, landscape and biodiversity improvement plans, and the family events and adults-only sessions that will be running.

They are looking to set-up a ‘Friends of the River Colne’ group, and we need you to bring to the forum your ideas, contacts, and suggestions for how the programme can link to projects that you are already running or aspire to run.

The partners’ key aim for the first year of the Friends group is to promote more effective and beneficial usage of the River Colne to the wider community. It is expected that the meeting will be attended by other current ‘friends’ groups in Watford, local conservationists, activity providers and members of organisations who work in the local area.
