Harpenden North and Rural

Your Harpenden North and Rural District councillors are Ayesha Rohale, Allison Wren and Ed Moore. 

Dr Allison Wren, a scientist, was elected a district councillor in May 2021.  Her priorities for Harpenden are to create more affordable housing; invest in road safety, especially around schools to enhance walking and cycling; attack the scourges of graffiti, litter and fly-tipping,  and increase the leisure opportunities for young people. She believes that Harpenden Station car park needs a rethink and that a Park and Ride scheme should be considered. Allison wants to make the everyday lives of those who live and work here better.

Ed Moore has lived in the Harpenden North ward since 1997. Having now raised three children through the local Wood End and Roundwood schools he is keen to see other families benefit from the warm and friendly community. Enjoying the benefits of superb travel links, easy access to a vibrant town centre and open countryside the ward has much to be thankful for and to protect. From nurturing our green spaces, to curbing anti-social behaviour Ed is looking to ensure our council is responsive to residents' needs.
