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.

Public Survey for Townsend Car Park

The Council has been approached by St Albans High School for Girls about a proposal to lease or part-lease Townsend Avenue Car Park for its sole use. The school needs more parking space for teachers, visitors, and others and, as it is located nearby to the school, Townsend Avenue Car Park is ideally placed for this purpose. The Council welcomes the views of residents, businesses, and community groups on this proposal to help us decide whether to lease the car park to the school.

To give us your views, please complete our survey which runs until Thursday 22nd June 2023.

Please note, the Survey will open in a new window outside of the Councils main website.
