Proposed Climate and Ecology Bill

At Full Council on 8th November 2023, Members discussed a request of support for the Climate and Ecology Bill, due its second reading in Parliament later this month. The request to support the Bill came from an organisation called Zero Hour which is lobbying the Government to pass the Bill.

A motion drafted by Zero Hour was circulated with the agenda. It was proposed by Councillors Twidell and Lambert to show support for the motion as circulated. It was then resolved to declare support for the Climate and Ecology Bill, to inform local residents, inform the local press and to write to local MPs informing them that this motion has been passed and urge them to support the Bill or thank them for already doing so.

Sandridge Toilets update 17th October 2023

The toilets in the Village Hall car park are, hopefully, due to partially open soon. The toilets are owned and managed by the District Council who are currently agreeing a commencement date with the selected contractor. To contact officers at the District Council you will need to access the web, If you don’t have one you will first need to set up a MyStAlbans account which will take just a few minutes.

We will do our best to keep residents updated here on our website. We are being proactive in regularly raising the absence of these toilets as a major issue.
