Welcome to Tring Town Council’s website.
Tring Town Council provides a valuable service for the community and represents the town’s interests in various ways. Working effectively and professionally with both the Borough and County Councils as well as other stakeholders, we ensure that the interests and assets of Tring are protected.
Part of our role is to enhance and promote the cultural life and wellbeing of Tring. We seek to improve the local environment, raising standards of recreational facilities and helping to meet the community’s needs.
The Town Council welcomes input from Tring residents and everyone is encouraged to attend the Council’s meetings. We have various responsibilities, which include managing the town’s allotments, discussing and commenting on planning applications in the town (Dacorum Borough Council has the final decision on planning issues), managing the Council’s properties in the town, and monitoring the town’s public areas.
We also support Tring by providing small grants to voluntary and community groups in the town, and through a range of initiatives such the Tring Youth Council and Tring Together.
If you would like information on any part of the Council’s activities and responsibilities, please contact the Clerk’s office.
