Nash Mills is a small parish of some 3,000 acres situated on the South/Westerly edge of Dacorum Borough Council (DBC). The Parish has rural boundaries on two sides, the third is the Grand Union Canal and the fourth is residential. Historically the Parish was a mixture of rural, industrial and residential. With the conversion of the SAPPI site into Nash Mills Wharf the Parish is now effectively just residential. There are a small number of industrial units and over 160 acres of wonderful countryside. The parish council held its first meeting on Friday 15th June 1973, the area was originally governed by Abbots Langley Parish Council prior to the enactment of the Local Government Act 1972. Our boundary was further amended by the Dacorum and Three Rivers (Areas) Order of 1985. 117 electors were transferred from Bedmond ward to Nash Mills ward on 1 April 1985.
The Parish is situated a couple of miles from Hemel Hempstead town centre and locally is serviced by The Denes shopping centre, a regular bus service into the town centre and London is only forty minutes via Apsley Station. The aim of this site is to provide you with all the information you need to know about the local community, amenities and history.
Please note that meeting details and agendas are ordinarily posted on the website and on the Parish noticeboard at The Denes, however we are currently using the Nash Residents Association noticeboard at The Denes until our new noticeboard arrives.
