HAPPY 50TH: Chorleywood Parish Council celebrates golden jubilee at meeting

 Published on: 24th May 2024   |   By: Bryn Holmes   |   Category: Uncategorized

At its most recent annual general meeting, Chorleywood Parish Council (CPC) celebrated its 50th anniversary.

The meeting, held at Chorleywood War Memorial Hall on Tuesday, May 7, ended with councillors and community figures gathering together for drinks, nibbles and to cut a specially made cake.

CPC came about as part of the Local Government Act of 1972, which reduced the total number of councils in England from 1,245 to 412.

Up until 1974, the area was managed at a council level by Chorleywood Urban District, but under the new act, the council was merged with the Watford and Rickmansworth Urban Districts to form what is today know as Three Rivers District Council.

CPC was created as a successor to the Urban District, taking over as the lowest level of local government in the village.

At the meeting, members of CPC gave a summary of some of its activities during the past political year. They announced that of the 19 objectives set at the beginning of that year, 10 had been fulfilled so far.

They also reflected on some of their achievements, including a new initiative to check the sustainability of planning applications.
