Reed bed development

Following a public consultation at The Memorial Hall, Sanctus Limited have been appointed by Jarvis Homes to decontaminate the reed bed site through a process of bioremediation, which speeds up the natural processes. They provided a booklet titled ‘Remediation of ‘Meadow View’ Reed Beds, Wheathampstead – information and frequently asked questions (click to view).

All information regarding the various planning applications and history of the project, can be found on the St Albans District Council website. This will be consistently updated.

Travellers on The Meads

Wheathampstead Parish Council is aware of the situation with regard to the travellers and is following the relevant processes.

We will provide updates as and when they are available.

Thank you to those who have reported the matter to both us and the police.

Crinkle Crankle Community Garden planting

Another planting session has been organised for the walled garden this Saturday morning (11 May) at 10am to plant the second batch of plants – approximately 250 mixed plants. There are slightly less plants than last time, however some of them are larger. 

If you would like to join the planting team, your help would be most appreciated! It would also be helpful if you have your own gloves and a spade or fork. 

If you are interested in helping, please email the Parish Council office.

Keeping hedgehogs safe

Do you know what to do if you find a hedgehog?

The Hornbeam Wood Hedgehog Sanctuary have come up with a checklist you can use should you come across one of our spiky little friends.
