About Us


The administrative parish of Chipperfield lies on the dip slope of the Chilterns approximately 5 miles south-west of Hemel Hempstead. It is situated in the Borough of Dacorum and forms part of the electoral ward of Bovingdon, Flaunden and Chipperfield.

The Parish Council was formed in 1958 by being separated from the administrative parish of Kings Langley. There are eight elected councillors who employ a part-time Clerk, and a Village Warden. The councillors all work on a purely voluntary basis.

The Parish Council is financed by raising a precept on all of the residential properties in Chipperfield. This and all financial details (current and historical) can be found in the “Reports and Audit” section of this web page. In addition the Parish Council manages the additional annual grants provided by Dacorum Borough Council for specific village services.

The Parish Council seeks to support other village organisations both with practical and financial help and there is Parish Council representation for the Allotments , Chipperfield News, the Village Hall, sports organisations, Chipperfield Care and it also has a close liaison with St Paul’s School.

Chipperfield Housing Needs Survey

Chipperfield Housing Needs Survey

Affordable Housing Needs Survey in Chipperfield October 2020

We at Chipperfield Parish Council seek to safeguard the future sustainability and viability of our community.

Many people living and working in our community struggle to access affordable and suitable housing. The Parish Council is working with Community Development Action Hertfordshire (CDA) and Dacorum BC to look at the current housing need in the Parish. We are reviewing whether there is demand for affordable housing for people with a strong connection to Chipperfield (through residency, family ties or employment) who cannot access the housing that they need locally. This could be the young, single people, families with young children, the elderly, or simply people struggling to make ends meet.

As a small community, we need to understand local people’s housing needs properly. We can use the information you give us to decide if a development of affordable housing is needed and also what type of housing should be provided. We need each household to complete one Housing Needs Survey questionnaire.

Your part in this exercise is crucial, regardless of whether or not you need alternative housing because a high response rate improves the accuracy of the survey result.

Please read the information that you have been sent and follow the instructions given. Please answer ALL questions if you believe that you, or someone else in your household, may need affordable housing.

ANY INFORMATION YOU SUPPLY WILL BE TREATED IN THE STRICTEST CONFIDENCE. Information given as part of the Housing Needs Survey will only be seen by CDA and will be made anonymous and presented in a compiled format to the Parish Council and other partners.

The questionnaire is being distributed to local households and can also be completed by friends and family who currently live elsewhere but who have a strong connection to the Parish and would wish to live in the area. Additional forms can be obtained from CDA Herts, tel. 01992 289060or the survey can be completed online.

Go towww.cdaherts.org.uk/rural-housing and follow the links.

The deadline for completion is 31 October 2020.

An affordable housing project could be provided if the need for affordable housing is confirmed (potentially restricted to local people unable to rent or buy on the open market). Depending on results, this could include housing for rent or shared ownership.

Any development would only go forward after consultation and planning approval, using an appropriate site. I urge you to complete the survey even if there is no requirement in your extended household as all the data will be used to formulate any future plans should there be a decision to progress with such a scheme. I thank you in anticipation of your response and for your co-operation.
