Annual Parish Meeting
The well attended Annual Parish Meeting on May 7th was lively at times. The main topic of questions from the floor was an idea that has been floated as a possible solution to some of the parking problems in Knebworth. It is only an idea at the moment but the suggestion is that a commuter car park could be created in a field off Park Lane just beyond the Deards End Lane junction.

Residents nearby jumped to a few incorrect conclusions but also made it clear that there would be strong objections if the idea went further. That is fair enough and I am delighted that one of them will be joining the Knebworth Parking Initiative group (KPI) and will then be able to report correctly any future discussions on the subject.

Knebworth Parking Initiative group
The KPI is made up of the following people. Our two district councillors Jane Gray and Alan Bardett, our county councillor Richard Thake, Mike Moult from the Village Trust, John Catt from the Parish Plan team. Parish Councillors John Bantick, Robin Smith, Graham Fothergill and the clerk, Simon Young - NHDC Transport Officer and a transport officer from the police. This is not a Parish Council led group. It was started up by Jane Gray, who also chairs the meetings. I should also stress that no representative of Knebworth House is involved and it is only a matter of chance that the field concerned is owned by Knebworth Park Estate. The name of the new member will be revealed following the next KPI meeting.

Annual Meeting of the Parish Council
The Annual Meeting of the Parish Council took place on May 14th. The current Chairman of the Parish Council, (Mr John Bantick) was reappointed for another year. The Chairmen of the Village Hall committee (Mr Barry Hall), Finance & General Purposes committee (Mr Anthony Titmarsh) and Planning & Environment committee (Dr Graham Fothergill) were all reappointed and Mrs Elisabeth Smith was appointed Chairman of the Recreation Ground committee, replacing Mrs Carol Smith who had to step down because of pressure of work.
