Addressing dog-related issues in Dacorum

In summary, it's proposed that:

  • Dogs are prohibited from enclosed children's play areas
  • Dogs must be put on a lead if requested by an authorised officer
  • All dog faeces should be removed
  • A person in charge of a dog should have appropriate means with them to remove dog faeces from the land.

Revitalising the River Gade, Gadebridge Park

We’d like your thoughts on proposals to improve the River Gade in Gadebridge Park. We're working with the Environment Agency and Affinity Water on plans to improve the river for wildlife, protect water resources, as well as making it easier for local residents and visitors to get closer to the river and enjoy nature. Please view the  Gadebridge Park river restoration - indicative landscape plan (PDF 3MB).

Our objectives include:

  • improving the river and adjacent parkland for wildlife
  • making it easier for residents and visitors to access the river and enjoy nature
  • protecting water resources from the effects of drought and climate change
  • reconnecting the river to its floodplain to reduce the impact of flooding

Improvements being considered include:

  • altering the course of the Gade to increase water flow and help brown trout, plants and insects flourish
  • reconnecting the Gade with its floodplain, to allow water to disperse more quickly after heavy rain
  • new footpaths along the river and crossing points to make access easier
  • environmental improvements, such as creating new wetland habitats
