Each February at the AGM, WDPS presents its priorities for the coming year.  These are the activities and issues on which WDPS plans to concentrate its efforts while at the same time trying to identify any unexpected opportunities and threats that may require more urgent attention.  The current priorities are the ones listed below.

  • Working on the land by the river at East Lane car park, looking for opportunities to improve access to the river and to making the site more attractive 

  •  Looking into further opportunities ro make better use of land (especially publicly owned land) with a view to creating gardens or points of interest.  This follows on from our work at Diamond Jubilee Garden and Bury Green Garden. 

  • Reviewing local planning applications and objecting to any that represent inappropriate development

  •  Creating tea towels and notelets depicting Wheathampstead
