Welcome to London Colney Parish Council

Welcome to London Colney, one of the biggest villages in Britain with a population of nearly 10,000 residents. London Colney has a lively and cosmopolitan community, with many groups and activities adding to the richness of village life.

At one time the High Street was one of the main routes to London and its abundance of inns were a popular stopover with coach travellers to and from the Capital. It has an interesting history, especially as it was within the London Colney area that the Romans captured Alban, before taking him to Verulamium (St Albans) for execution.


There are 7 days for the public to respond to the Hertsmere Draft Local Plan to put 5000 houses on the site between London Colney and Colney Heath called Bowmans Cross.  Please take 10 minutes to read the proposal and have your say.  At the public meeting held in London Colney on Monday 20th May, it was stressed by the attending Councillors that we need individual responses to make a difference.

Please find the link directly relating to Bowmans Cross settlement.

Hertsmere, UK: Hertsmere Local Plan: Public Consultation: Bowmans Cross (

There is some information for you to read followed by a “NEXT“ button which will take you to the map and an opportunity to leave your views.

Some examples of objections relating to this this plan:

  • Traffic from an extra 1.3 cars per household (6500 cars for 5000 homes)
  • Gridlock when the M25 has an incident, junction 20 to 24 has a high incident rate during peak hours and adverse weather conditions
  • Excessive surface water from the additional 469 square hectares (approximately 1158 acres) site area
  • There is no mention additional retail, which will impact Colney Fields parking
  • Any social housing in this area will benefit Hertsmere, not St Albans residents
