Philosophy of Moor Park
Moor Park is situated within the Three Rivers District of Hertfordshire. The area has around six square miles of private roads and consists mostly of upscale houses, some dating back to the original 1920s developments. Many homeowners commute to London via Moor Park station on the Metropolitan line of the London Underground, situated within the Estate.
If you are buying, or have recently purchased, a property in Moor Park, we warmly welcome you to our special and beautiful Estate.
All our members share the same objective, to protect the unique environment of Moor Park with its fine houses, open frontages, wide avenues lined with trees, spectacular views, low walls and grass verges – all features of the 1920s design.
The residents of Moor Park and the company that manages it, Moor Park (1958) Ltd, are in a partnership to safeguard the quality and advantages of living on the Estate. When you purchase a house on the Estate, you become a Member of the Company. The Directors, staff and residents (over 500 of us) all share in this responsibility and we hope that as a member, you too will help us in our endeavours, for you will be moving into Moor Park because of these distinctive features.
In order to protect Moor Park’s unique characteristics, there are requirements that we request all Members to observe. For example, if a Member intends to develop or extend his or her property or make other structural changes, planning proposals to do so are carefully considered by the company, as well as by the local authority, Three Rivers District Council. Please ensure that you understand all the criteria as detailed in the section on Planning and Development before purchasing a property on the Estate.
Moor Park was designated as a Conservation Area in 1995 because of its special architectural, historic and landscape features. Among the salient factors in being a Conservation Area is that there are restrictions on development. Consent is needed for the total or partial demolition of buildings and there are guidelines on permitted plot developments, the maintenance of the landscape and the protection of trees.
There are other considerations that we ask Members to observe, such as speed of traffic, noise and parking. All of these are designed to safeguard Moor Park’s environment.
