Development of St John's Church site

Hertsmere Borough Council and the Parochial Church Council (PCC) of Radlett are to re-develop St John's Church site, in order to provide a new church and hall for the community and six units of affordable accommodation (three flats and three terraced houses).

The PCC believes this is a God-given opportunity, benefiting everyone:

  • the church in gaining new buildings to replace increasingly costly and “non-green” ones
  • the community in gaining a new hall and affordable accommodation so that, for instance, local schools might have teachers who can live in Radlett
  • Hertsmere Borough Council which has been able to re-invest “Section 106” monies (derived from the large houses and apartments recently built in Radlett) back into “the village”

Hertsmere are providing the construction funds for the project and has now appointed a contractor (TSG Building Services) who will start work on site in July 2021. The current site will be split into two, allowing church services and some community activities (including “Christ Church Nursery”) to continue in temporary accommodation. It is hoped that the new church and Hall will be completed and in use from September 2022.

TSG is a well-regarded local building services and construction company, headquartered in Potters Bar and with links in Radlett. We will work closely with them to ensure continuing harmonious relations with the community around the site, and a successful project to benefit Radlett.
