February 2007


Parish Precept
The December meeting of the Parish Council confirmed the amount of money that Knebworth will be asking for as the Parish Precept portion of the Council Tax for 2007/8. The modest increase is roughly in line with inflation.

Within the next financial year we will have paid off all building costs for the recreation ground pavilion. We also expect that, with the help of North Herts District Council grants, our Village Hall windows will be double glazed and more play equipment can be installed at the KGV recreation ground in Old Knebworth and the main recreation ground off Watton Road.

Parking Issues
You will have received a copy of the Knebworth Labour Party “Knebworth Community News” in December. The front page refers to parking issues. There are two main areas of concern. The first one is the High Street and the second is the area around the station where commuters are parking. The Parish Council and our NHDC councillors are already in discussion about this. We may initiate a public meeting to discuss parking issues. I would like readers to consider the following options and if you have comments or other possible solutions please contact me.

  • PERMIT PARKING – in Pondcroft Rd, Gun Lane, Park Lane, Deards Wood, Lytton Fields etc….
    • Who will police this on a daily basis ?
    • Are residents willing to pay annually for this ?
  • RESTRICTING PARKING near the station until after 9.30 seems a good idea but this needs to be policed and with the increase in the number of folk using Knebworth station to travel by Travelcard (because of the restriction imposed at Stevenage on the hours you can return from London) we may need to restrict parking until 10.30.
  • The suggestion, made in the Labour Party leaflet, to reduce the charges for Parking in the station car park seems to me a non starter as the car park is usually full anyway.

It may be that we will be forced to accept the parking fraternity in the area West of the station but we should expect that traffic wardens will ensure that access and egress from roads and drives is not impaired by indiscriminate parking.

It is difficult but the Parish Council will ensure that these issues are addressed and, where possible, solutions put in place.
