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.

They are all aimed at Keeping Wheathampstead Wonderful.

  • Don’t Mess With Wheathampstead anti-litter campaign
Volunteers picking litter
  • Maintenance of the Diamond Jubilee Garden

  • Maintenance of  Bury Green Garden 
  • Looking into further opportunities to 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
