ABBOTS PARK RESIDENTS' ASSOCIATION (APRA)
If you have just moved, or are about to move to Abbots Park, the Residents' Association would like to welcome you and to pass on some information which you may find useful.
An extended version of this information is available to residents from the committee. Additional information is also contained in the APRA Constitution and the Scheme of Management.
The Residents' Association manage the gardens and take up issues which
affect the residents. The AGM takes place in October and all residents are
welcome to attend though tenants do not have voting rights. We would like to
encourage as many of you as possible to come along and have your say. Committee
members are elected each year and work very hard on everyone's behalf, using
their own time to try to help with problems and work towards improving the

We are in the unusual position of having seven acres of mature, communal grounds, shared by 117 homes. We probably have more trees than any other estate in the district. The committee has done an enormous amount of hard work recently on the gardens. Legislation protects many of our trees. More than one hundred of them have tree preservation orders. This means that we have to apply to St Albans City and District Council for permission to carry out work on them.
Some areas of Abbots Park are cultivated by the residents and add greatly to the look of the estate – e.g. the borders round the flats, the balconies, the area in front of the townhouses, the strip at the back of the townhouses, and a corner near the garages.
PARKING Townhouses have their own garage and a parking space. Flats and maisonettes have their own parking bays.
GARAGES Some of the garages in the blocks at the back of the estate are owned by residents, some rented. If you wish to rent one, please contact the managing agent.
The Residents’ Association aims to make Abbots Park a better place for everyone who lives there. If you are interested in helping that would be much appreciated, or if you have any suggestions or queries please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
