Parking, roads and transport

We are responsible for parking services - from managing car parks to introducing parking controls such as resident parking schemes to address local parking issues. 

We also help keep the streets clear by tackling illegally parked or abandoned vehicles. We are responsible for making sure streets are clearly and logically named and numbered.

Our aim is to make it as easy and safe as possible for residents, businesses and visitors to travel around the District and to find somewhere to park. 

Services to maintain our roads and pavements are carried out by Hertfordshire County Council, including potholes, faulty streetlights and traffic signs, weed control, and over-grown trees. But we’ll point you in the right direction to make it easy for you to report issues and have these sorted out.
