St Albans Joins National Refill Water Bottle Network

St Albans Joins National Refill Water Bottle Network

Visitors to St Albans can now refill their water bottles with tap water for free at a growing network of friendly cafes, shops, hotels and businesses.

St Albans City and District Council has written to local businesses inviting them to join Refill St Albans. The local scheme forms part of the national Refill campaign aimed at addressing the impact of single-use plastic bottles on the environment. If businesses have a water cooler, a drinking water tap or a water jug, then they are eligible to take part in the scheme.

Businesses that want to offer free tap water can register their location on the 'Refill App' . This app is available to download to a smart phone by people looking for somewhere to refill their water bottle at: https://www.refill.org.uk/get-the-refill-app/

More School Places for St Albans

More School Places for St Albans

St Albans Council has approved a recommendation to create an additional 30 more school places at St Peter's Primary School in St Albans. This will include additional classroom accommodation to support the increased number of pupils.

The places are being created in response to local demand in the area and it is intended that they would be available from September 2020. This will mean the school will have the capacity to admit 60 reception aged children growing to a full two form entry thereafter.

A consultation which took place from January - March to collect the views of local people and the response showed a good level of support for the expansion. A statutory notice will be issued and the notice period will run from 4 May until 7 June, 2018. A final decision will be made by Cabinet in July should there be any objections.

The latest proposals come on top of the over £250m already approved since 2010 to provide over 19,000 additional permanent and tempo

St Albans Council takes over weed treatment from Herts County Council

St Albans Council takes over weed treatment from Herts County Council


A new programme for clearing weeds from roads and pavements in the St Albans District starts in April – and you can keep an eye on the results. Residents can report weeds, check what streets are due to be treated and when the work is due to go ahead on a new webpage: http://bit.ly/2GCHAmc

It will take around four weeks for the weeds to perish after being sprayed and they will then be removed by street cleaners. After that, residents will be able to see for themselves if the clean-up has been successful. The programme is being undertaken by St Albans City and District Council to improve the look of neighbourhoods particularly during the growth seasons of spring and summer.

The Council has taken over the responsibility for weeds management across the District...
