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.
