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
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.
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.
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.
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.
