Building on the Government’s plans for localism, and in order to increase opportunities for local councillors and communities to decide how money is spent in their area, Hertfordshire County Council introduced the following schemes.

Member Locality Budget

Launched in 2009, the Member Locality Budget enables each elected member of the County Council to spend up to £10,000 on worthwhile projects in their community that promote social, economic or environmental wellbeing.

Highways Locality Budget

The Highways locality budget allows elected members to allocate funding for highway maintenance including road resurfacing, pavement repairs, and drainage clearing.  The scheme, which commenced in 2011, can also be used to support traffic calming schemes and smaller projects such as hedge trimming, sign cleaning and white line painting.  County Councillors discuss highway plans and issues with their district, town and parish counterparts, but residents are also encouraged to get in touch if they have ideas for highways improvements in their local area.  Eight St Albans District Councillors also represent Divisions within the City and District on Hertfordshire County Council.
