Aldbury is a busy and thriving village of families, commuters, entrepreneurs, creatives and retirees. Our wider community includes Tring Station which is included in the Parish Boundary.

The current 2021 survey plan is complete and awaiting Parish Council response. It will be published here shortly.
Community Survey and Planning
