Committees and working groups

These are the main committees and working groups that your councillors can opt to be a part of. Executive committees can make decisions, whereas non-executive committees and working groups must refer any decisions to executive committees or to full Council. For details of which executive committees councillors are involved in, visit the Your Councillors page.

Executive committees

Members of the public are entitled to attend any meeting of an executive committee, excluding personnel. See the calendar on the homepage for the relevant dates and times.

Community Involvement: CI focuses on projects such as community events. Some working groups, like allotments, report to CI.

Maintenance: Responsible for maintaining property owned by the parish council (both land and building) such as open spaces and The Memorial Hall.

Planning: Planning applications submitted to St Albans District Council that fall within the parish are reviewed individually. Recommendations for approval or refusal are made. More complex plans are referred to full Council.

Finance: Finances are reviewed periodically and initial yearly budgets prepared in readiness for full Council.

Personnel: Organisation of staffing matters.
