The Colne Valley Park is the first large taste of countryside to the west of London. The Park, which was founded in 1965, stretches from Rickmansworth in the north to Staines and the Thames in the south, Uxbridge and Heathrow in the east to Slough and Chalfont in the west.

The objectives of the park are:

To maintain and enhance the landscape, historic environment and waterscape of the park in terms of their scenic and conservation value and their overall amenity.

To safeguard the countryside of the Park from inappropriate development. Where development is permissible it will encourage the highest possible standards of design.

To conserve and enhance biodiversity within the Park through the protection and management of its species, habitats and geological features

To provide opportunities for countryside recreation and ensure that facilities are accessible to all

To achieve a vibrant and sustainable rural economy, including farming and forestry, underpinning the value of the countryside

To encourage community participation including volunteering and environmental education. To promote the health and social well-being benefits that access to high quality green space brings.

There is a ‘cast of thousands’ who have a stake in the Colne Valley Park. Partners include local authorities, parish councils, community groups, residents associations, farmers, landowners, charities, businesses, government agencies and user groups (anglers, boaters, walkers, cyclists, horseriders, birdwatchers etc….)

The Colne Valley Park Community Interest Company (CIC) is responsible for implementing the 6 objectives of the Park. All the organisations listed above are eligible to join as members of the Community Interest Company, please download the attached membership form for organisations. Local residents, visitors to the park and members of the public can join the Friends of the Colne Valley Park.
