Community Safety

The Parish Council aims to make Bovingdon a safer place to live, visit and work.  Improved Community Safety includes reduction in road accidents, incidents of criminality and public disorder.

In order to achieve this the Parish Council will form alliances and partnerships with other agencies such as; Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner, Hertfordshire Constabulary, Hertfordshire Road Safety Partnership and Dacorum Community Safety Partnership.

Community DriveSafe

Vehicle speed is one of the major causes of road traffic collisions.  The Police Commissioner’s DriveSafe Campaign acts to raise driver awareness of excessive speed.

A team of volunteers conduct regular speed monitoring sessions in the village.  Vehicles driving too fast are reported to the Office of the Police Commissioner and their registered owners receive warning letters.

If anyone living in the village would like to know more about the scheme or wishes to express an interest in volunteering, please contact Councillor Ben Richardson.

Road Safety Feasibility Study

The report from a recent feasibility study conducted in the Chesham/Hempstead Roads (B4505), High Street and Chipperfield Road listed a number of options for road improvement.  As a result the Parish Council has submitted a bid for funding from the Police Commissioner’s Road Safety Fund.  The outcome of this bid will be known early in 2019.

Dacorum Community Safety Partnership

The partnership aims to make Dacorum even safer and more pleasant, and provide a background where people, communities and businesses can flourish.
