Aldbury Parish Council, at its Extraordinary Parish Council meeting on Monday 25 April 2022, resolved to make the following objections to the 22/01187/MOA planning application.
1 Permission to build on Green Belt land, which is also adjacent to the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, should be refused. No "Very Special Circumstances" have been put forward to justify the damage to the Green Belt. The land is also much needed grade 2 agricultural land.
2 Development is not permitted in view of the Chilterns Beechwoods SAC Development Restrictions. The offer to provide a suitable alternative natural green space is not an adequate mitigation.
3 It is not acceptable to build on a scale that is inappropriate to the current size of Tring. This proposed development, plus Roman Park, would increase the population of Tring by 34%, which would overwhelm the capacity of this historic market town forever. The proposed development would also have a serious impact on Aldbury Parish, in particular on the hamlet of Tring Station (the West Ward of Aldbury Parish). Difficulties of access to, and parking at, the railway station itself would be exacerbated.
4 There is no commitment from principal authorities and the NHS to fund additional infrastructure, e.g. new schools and health centres.
5 Dacorum Borough Council should be seeking alternative brownfield sites and should finalise the new local plan in accordance with evolving government guidelines, before Green Belt land is sacrificed. If necessary, location Tr01 should be first be considered as a more appropriate site for development.

Filming in Aldbury - LORD OF MISRULE
On behalf of the entire cast and crew of Lord of Misrule, I wanted to thank the village and people of Aldbury for the warm welcome you extended us, and for your hospitality, patience and good humour as we’ve toiled away among you over the past six weeks.
It has been an enormous privilege for us to shoot our movie in such a beautiful, characterful setting and I think we’ll all take a little piece of Hertfordshire away in our hearts as we leave.
I am particularly grateful to the Parish Council for permitting us to film here and for helping us to do so respectfully and responsibly, and to all the householders, landowners and local businesses who have worked with us along the way. Not to mention our local Supporting Artists! A big thanks also to the Warden and Archdeacon of St John the Baptist church; without their support and assistance, our movie would have been much the poorer.
With filming complete, we’re now embarking on the long journey of post-production, during which the film will be edited, the score and soundtrack composed, the picture colour-graded and the visual effects created and layered in. We hope to be finished in time to release the film next autumn or the following spring. We will of course be in touch with any news as it becomes public.
Until then, a fond farewell from us all, and thanks again,
