Oliver has expressed his ongoing concern about the developments at Aldenham Reservoir, including the decision by Liberty Lake Leisure Ltd to construct a fence around the lake.
Oliver has consistently fought to preserve this local jewel and has been following the developments closely.
Oliver said: ’As I have said many times before, it is vitally important that we do not damage the reservoir’s wonderful open spaces and continue to retain public access.
I continue to liaise with relevant local groups, constituents and agencies involved. I know that Hertfordshire County Council did everything they could to work with Liberty to reach an agreement about recording this footpath as a public right of way, ensuring public access is retained. I am extremely disappointed that LLL have now both lowered the reservoir by one metre and erected a fence along the perimeter.
I have written to the Secretary of State to register my support for the footpath to be recorded as a public right of way and will continue to raise constituents concerns to all involved to secure the future of Aldenham Reservoir.’
