South Oxhey Initiative - Compulsory Purchase Order

To facilitate the South Oxhey Project, the Council issued a Compulsory Purchase Order which has been submitted to the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government for confirmation. Objections have been made to the Order and the Secretary of State has therefore appointed an Inspector to hold a public inquiry to consider objections. The Inquiry was held on Tuesday 22 November 2016 at the Main Council Chamber at Three Rivers District Council, Three Rivers House, North way, Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire, WD3 1RL.

The Order seeks authority to acquire all of the land within the boundaries shown on the maps. Those maps can be accessed via the link below. The interests to be acquired are as listed in the schedule to the Order and are summarised in the CPO Notice which is also available below.   The copy of the Order which is available online below has had all of the names and addresses of those parties removed for data protection purposes. 

A hard copy of the Order with all of the details listed is available for inspection at the following locations and times:

  1. Three Rivers District Council, Three Rivers House, Northway, Rickmansworth WD3 1RL; and
  2. Oxhey Library, Bridlington Road, South Oxhey WD19 7AG.

A copy can also be seen by appointment at the Watford Rural Parish Council Offices, Oxhey Drive, South Oxhey, Hertfordshire, WD19 7SB.
